    You don't USUALLY throw those things away... A typical reducer thingey like that may well run $20-100 each...

    That sucker looks like a 223 shell reducer that shoots rimfire...

    Poke the shell back out and find out what's in it... 17 HM2?

    I bet there are some poachers hunting at night... That's how they stay quiet...

    What is this weird cartridge?

    Cartridge is 2 & 3/16" long...ImageUploadedByOutdoor Forums1416692537.275781.jpg
    And has this stamped near the neck:

    UTM 5.56 RH

    Makes me wonder if it's some sort of adapter cartridge used in an AR upper with a .17 cal barrel?

    What is this weird cartridge?

    It's a training cartridge called a man-marker round. Here's a link to an online source:

    http://www.btitactical.com/utm-556mm...l#.VHEHHoo8LCQ

    Law enforcement or military purchase only.

    Mystery solved! Except, what he heck are these doing in the woods on a WMA?

    Got it. Its Ultimate Training Munitions (UTM) proprietary training round cartridge.

    Here's a pretty good write up on the round.
