Thanks for the quick feedback everyone! The site I found this at was obviously a shooting range or target practice area at some point. I've found hundreds of late 1800's/early 1900's bullets/shell casings/shotgun headstamps here as well as some decent old coins. I tried knocking on the neighbor's door a few times where I believe the firing line may have been but they never answer. I think they might think I'm trying to sell them something!
