I checked both of my canister rounds, a slug loaded one and a flechette loaded one. They both have slits down the sides to within 1 1/2 inches of the rotating band, and a hollow base, and they have a more substantial rotating band than yours, just like a 90mm M71 HE.

I think you might have a test smoke projectile, that hasn't been filled and had the flat nose crimped on. Those projectiles have a hole in the base to start the smoke burning. I've never seen them in 90mm though. 76mm is the largest I've seen.
