    Try matching it up on this chart so graciously posted by TheCannonBallGuy.

    I don't see where it would fit, I know nothing about them.
    My thinking is it is for some other use like A2cions said.

    I don't think that it's a cannon ball.

    I'm not sure this is a cannon ball, but could be a large bearing?

    Welcome to TNET and hope you will tarry with us and share stories and pics of finds! I am sorry to say but I agree that it is not a cannonball. From the damage and the overall appearance, the ball appears to be Steel and is likely a very large bearing.
