Don't know where to put these photo and ask questions. You military types and gun gurus, is this a dud bullet? Is it possible the projectile was attached to an empty shell casing? I found this going through my dad's stuff. I am thinking of polishing, or engraving it, make into some sort of art work. Do I need to be careful with it?

Primer has been struck, might be a dud, or as you said, a projectile was put in a fired case. If you shake it, should hear if powder is in it, if so, be careful.

That's a 12.7 mm round similar to a 50 caliber machine gun round.

AND PLEASE DO NOT BRING IT TO THE PHILIPPINES WITH YOU! Ha Ha.

I've seen many reloaded bullets here using the old primer. Some primers have 6-8 primer marks.

Thanks! I do hear a slight rattle when I shake it. I'm not sure I want it now.

It should be safe to polish up, even if is a live round..as long as you are careful and don't get it hot
I'd leave off the "engraving" though until I got it to a gunsmith to have it checked.
Don't throw it away. It might not have alot of value now but it might someday. Think baseball cards...comics.
I had some old wooden fishing lures and brass spoon lures that were my grand-fathers.. on a lark I put them one by one on e-bay as an auction.. I got almost $900 for one of them.. pretty much bowled me over when I was watching the bidding.

On another note...
I really like a little Black Bush every so often. Not as often as I did when I was younger. But I don't have the stamina I used to.

Innuendo is intentional......

Sounds good. I'm not sure where he got it, but if I were to guess it's a souvenir from Korea when he was stationed there just after the cease fire.

Just did some research online, and the Browning M2 was used in the Korean War, and the photos of the ammo look exactly like what I have. So I might just polish it up and call it a day.

Maybe better to NOT polish it! - Usually, antiques are worth more in their original, naturally-aged, state?
