Yes. It’s a shell designed to blow apart but it was a dud.
Thanks that's cool. I'm in amazement it weighs 101lbs. What's the diameter on a cannonball that size? I'm sorry for all the questions, I just dont see stuff like that in kansas. Thanks again.

Congratulations on your cannon ball.
Biggest one that has been posted up in a longtime.

Just wondering how deep was it?
I'm sure there was grunting going on to get it recovered.
