Hi All,

I am in need of some help/advice. I found this brass tube, which has measurements marked on the side. It has oz then 1 1/2 and 1 1/4 markings down the side.
If I was to guess, it has something to do with reloading ammunition, but I would love if someone could point me in the right direction please?

Yep definitely a shot measure, pity the flask has detached or rotten off, great find, I know of a black powder shotgun it would have matched.
I think likely a 12g by the shot load. or maybe a 10 ?

Great find mate.
