Fashioned after the original ordnance in size and weigh but made of laminated wood with steel base and nose band, presumably weighted with a lead core to obtain the 24 pound total.

Used in training simulations for loading and handling practice. 35 inches in length and pictured next to a Reising Model 60 for size comparison, head stamp is

1944 3" Dummy Cartridge Mk6 50 Cal.

For use in the 3″/50 caliber gun (spoken "three-inch-fifty-caliber") in United States naval gun terminology indicates the gun fired a projectile 3 inches (76mm) in diameter, and the barrel was 50 calibers long (barrel length is 3in 50 = 150in or 3.8m). Different guns (identified by Mark numbers) of this caliber were used by the US Navy.
