Treemaninaction posted a topic in Fossil IDMy wife and I went out for our third fossil hunting expedition and landed on what I would consider to be our first big find. We went camping up near Ram Falls, in Alberta Canada.

I ran into this ammo again just a month ago or two? Found this many years ago and put it away cause it was in bad shape! This thing was in about 4 or 5 pieces and the intire fragmacone along with the appature opening was covered in rock. i did a bit of prep here and there over the last month or so and then began to realize that this just may turn out purty good?

Oh, it measures 4.5 inches at its widest points.
