Mystery lead (cartridge?)
Found this on an 1895-ish house north of KC MO. Will get weights and measurements if needed. Closest object to it in the pic is a Liberty nickel.
Pull tabs? We don't need no stinking pull tabs!

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro....
Looks more like a valve stem cover to me.

Can ya post pic of top and bottom....just wondered if solid or hollow as well as threaded. Most lead gets a white patina. It looks too long for a bullet plus it appears to have a seam in the middle.

Look too long to be a bullet. Monty

I think you might have a Nichols '45, 2-piece bullet (for a toy cap pistol) that
was popular back in the late 1950's. A round Stallion cap was placed in a
shortened bullet shell and the part you found was placed in the shell.
Cool find. . . (my childhood memories)
