    It looks like a shell for an old Krupp mountain gun. What is it?

    Actually it's Japanese. I dont know for sure, but it may be for those little field guns they liked to drag around.

    When not trying to reload them, I use them for brushes, they have heavy bases so dont fall over!

    Sometimes you gotta go big or go home.

    I know the ones. There were lots of them on display on bases throughout the Pacific rim.
