Any idea's on this bullet?

Its an 8mm x 20mm and appears to be stainless or nickle plated.
Thanks in advance.

Can you do a head stamp photo?

Thanks J_R
It has G.F.L and 8mm stamped on it. Just seems a bit unusual.

Fiocchi blank,replica blank firing guns.

G F L means Giulio Fiocchi Lecco which is in Italy. A very old ammunition company. Very good ammunition as well.
Looks to be 8mm

Thanks J_R and Graeme. Certainly a bit unusual.

A friend of mine once had a pepper spray pistol that had rounds just like that.

It could be one of two blanks - either a 8mm Salve blank or a 9mm Knall blank.
Used for reinactors, training, training dogs, race starting and so on.
Very similar to what I fire - blanks!

At least you still have a cannon to fire your blanks Lammerlaw. Or is it a Derringer now ?

Cheers “The Hatter”

Thanks to your friendly chemist the cannon barrel is still capable of being used, its just the fact that what was once a Gatling gun is now a starters pistol!
