    Wood Drill round

    I picked this up today. I think it is a form of 3" 50 cal. Drill round.
    The only markings are part numbers on the various elements of it.
    I have not seen this form before, there seems to be a much more
    common almost all wood type around. Very nose heavy -

    Not a keeper (space issues), but seems awfully heavy to ship any where -
    interested parties might contact me.

    Yes. A 3" 50. I have three versions.

    My understanding is the earlier wooden versions were used for human loader training. The all metal version a cycling dummy for the auto loaders.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    This one seems to replicate an APHE type while the others time fuzed HE for AA use.
