    Can you identify this bullet shell?

    My dad found this while metal detecting his property. Heís found items that date anywhere from the late 1800ís to around 1940. Any idea about this one? He drew what the letters and numbers said on the bottom of it. Thanks in advance! Click image for larger version.
