A young guy was shooting a 50 Caliber a few spots away from me at the range yesterday (YEA). After he left I dug this round out of the berm. I think it was one of his but I'm not positive. What do y'all think!!!! I've got some other photos but photobucket is so slow and I've got to get back to work.

I agree about the shotgun slug. You would be digging several feet into the berm to retrieve a 50 BMG round and you would not see that type of expansion.

Looks very much like shotgun slugs or saboted handgun bullets out of a muzzleloader look like. Like someone else said you would have had to dig a long way to find a 50 cal slug.
