Octagon shaped, non-magnetic

Found this at a very old home site where I've found 1830's coins. It is octagon shaped, very heavy. The center hole has lines which could be rifling if this was part of a gun barrel. But seems like a gun barrel would be iron or steel, this is non-magnetic.



Greetings and good luck from West Virginia

Brass was used for some pistol barrels, maybe others.

Lead?

It seems heavy like lead, but lead is soft and this is hard because you can't cut slivers off with a knife like you can lead.
