Nice finds, I like that ring! What do you do with all the ammo and the shells? Do you just hoard them, or sell them as scrap? Are they even worth anything?

Brass in a bucket to scrap. I do save all the 50 cal shells and bullets. 30 cal bullets go in with my lead, shells go in a brass bucket.

50 cal's are mostly copper covered steel anyway, not lead.

The shark was found over 7 miles from the channel. You can run aground in a lot of places in this lake if you are not careful.
Wait wait... I got it. Someone was using it as a casting weight. LOL

I was thinking maybe a boat anchor for a jet ski. However with that cable and quick disconnect on it for a regular line, I doubt it.
