    It looks like an artillery training round.

    A photo of the bottom of the round or a measurement of its diameter may help.

    If the base diameter is a little over 4 inches, you have a 105mm training round.

    Scott, that's not a 75. They aren't shouldered like that. maybe some countries 37m/m but too late here to research it.

    Thanks buss.

    It looks like it is a training round from a 3" 50 cal USN gun:
