    Ww2 bullet / projectile from my uncle, what is it?

    This seems to be a manufactured round and not a simple cast bullet. the writing maybe looks Japanese? the other full rounds with it are Japanese but they were 7.7 jap and this appears to be closer to 50 caliber.

    It looks like a Japanese type 100 20mm Aircraft round projectile to me

    I'm thinking this! Googling this, I'm stuck because any color markings are long gone so its hard to tell if tracer, explosive or AP. size is constant with 12.7mm

    No pic of the mouth? I doesn't appear to have lands and grooves so it might've been pulled and deactivated??

    It for sure looks unfired.

    How careful should I handle it if it turns out to be an explosive round?

    Knowns- CH head stamp is Fabrique, formerly FN, in German occupied Belgium.

    Unknowns- probably a 50 cal exploding bullet made for Japan.

    You have the bullet on the left. Apparently it's Italian. I don't find it unusual to be made in Belgium because they didn't put all their bullets in one basket during the war. Enjoy your search.
