    Close up of some kind of shell, like a mussel shell or something?

    That's what I would guess. I can't seem to think of anything else it could be.

    hmm I have no idea what it is -but it looks more metalic than buggy to me.
    I would hazard that it some metallic component of something.

    It's obviously a brass/copper cylindrical object that's crimped on one end. I was thinking a .22 cartridge, but those aren't crimped.

    Yeah, I thought of a rimfire bullet as well, but they wouldn't have a silver center like that/.

    I can't believe I didn't think to put extension tubes on my x-mas list. This looks like fun.

    I think we need a hint. Clearly something metallic as has been pointed out, but I haven't got a clue what it could be. Are we looking at the bottome of it? Top? side? inside?

    Tacticalremix has it right. It's 250 gr .45 Jacketed Hollowpoint.

    So a bullet would be the correct answer. Congrats. Here's the full photo.

    You said cartridge, he said bullet. LOL

    You're both right.
