Afternoon all, I got this about 18 months ago. It is about 2" in diameter and weighs in at just under 1lb. I'm thinking cannon ball or is it 2 small. Not seen any on the forums to compare.

It looks cannonball shaped :D :thumbsup: probably a little 1 pounder or from 12 lbs grape - I stand to be corrected

Hi Steve. Think it might be a shot from a Falconet Cannon. See Wiki link below. I think they’ve turned up around our area before.
