I found a .50 cal bullet in Wyoming one time, walking around looking at some outcrops on a geology field trip in college. During WWII, they used rural Wyoming for training grounds, shooting .50 cal machine guns from the planes. I found a half dozen .50 caliber casings laying on top of the ground throughout the course of a week, but only one bullet like the one you found- wedged into the side of a friable sandstone outcrop. It was pretty cool!

Nice find! thumbsup01

I don't know much about guns either, but I believe what you have there is just the slug (top part) without the casing (bottom part).
