    Just dug at old homestead in the woods. Do the holes mean it is disarmed?

    I'm saying yes but be careful with it.

    Doesn't look like it has a primer.

    Primer is missing and it looks like there is a hole drilled through the side right where your pinky finger is. I'd say you're good to go.

    it's inert. as stated, it's been cross drilled and has the primer removed. It's a .50 cal. round

    Some .50 caliber bullets have armor piercing tips, which can exploded under high impact. I found a live .50 caliber bullet a few months ago, and was warned on here about that. Very cool find though, those bullets are huge!!
    Also, Is there another number after the "4", because most of the WWII era ones have the date on the head stamp in the form of the last two digits of the year (such as "43").

    W/ regard to the headstamp, not neccesarily! Acccording to here (best site for 50 headstamps i know, kudos) it is a Frankford arsenal 1944

    WWII 50 Caliber Headstamps

    Also nobody cared in these day if the die didnot struck 100%. They were going for effect rather than beauty!


    I wholeheartedly agree with in case of doubt not tampering with any projectiles above infantry calibre! There are phosphorous, APE, API and dozens of other nasty things to loose life limp fingers eyesight or burn down your house after a drying period. Projectiles alone w/o cartridge are also difficult to decide on first glance from the various 20mms and w/ 20mm the trouble really starts...

    It may ot may not be illegal also in your jurisdiction to merely possess an incendiary or explosive projectile, regardless of age.

    As said before this one is a drill or presentation cartridge and save to have, but when in doubt, rebury with bullet down.
