Probably a .50 Caliber by the looks of things, hope that helps

It was probably a .50 dud someone pulled apart, I'm guessing because of the condition.

When I was a kid we would pull dud bullets apart to play with the gun powder.

When I was a kid like 7 or 8 years old I remember me a my Neighbor Buddy would take my Dads Live .223 Bullets, put them in a vise & cut them open with a Hacksaw to get the Gunpowder to make our own M-80's. LEON.

A hacksaw?! LOL

We would pull the tops off using pliers, by twisting really hard. Mostly what we found were hunting rounds, like 30 30 and 30 06. I remember blowing up a lot of fruit, LOL.
