Help identifying

Hello! Someone in an artifact forum I’m a part of found this, and unsure of what it is. My first thought was some sort of Civil War munition but very unsure as I haven’t found anything that looks just like it. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Part of some sort of hand cranked mill or grinding device for grains or coffee?

Howdy Corson,
A bit more detail of the item would be of help, like: dimensions, how much does it weigh, is it hollow or solid, what does the other end look like?
Thanks,
Regards Ozzi.
