I'm not 100% on this, but it appears to be a musket ball. It looks like it has hit something. If it is a musket ball it is my first. It is about the size of a marble and quite heavy. 20.3 grams. What do you guys think? :dunno

I am no expert but it looks like musket ball to be. Maybe 60 cal or larger. It has hit something. Only if it could tell the story when it was shot. Congrats on the find.

Other than a homemade marble I can't think of anything else but a musketball. Good that you got out again.
