    It is indeed an 8" shell, the biggest cased ammo the American military has produced. It was fired from a naval gun like those found on the USS Salem.

    Yeah, baby!

    14" also use powder bags. 14" was the biggest I ever got to pick up. The big question is what is Betty going to do with it? I've seen the brass used for everything from ash tray's to belt buckles...... But that's a bit big! And she doesn't have the end that does the work!! :3schild40
