Identification help. Found on the beach in RI this morning

Just found this on the beach is Westerly, RI. Curious as to age/caliber/maker. Is the stuff inside just ocean build up? This is super cool to me so any info is much appreciated! Thanks!

hello
i don’t know the size (even the money) but i remind me a 44mg SJHP winchester (the very short part of jacket above the knurled cannelure and even the curved base)

Awesome. I see that on the hollow points. Thank you!

Size reference: the quarter is .953"/24.2mm diameter.
The bullet appears to be just under 1/2 the diameter, which could make it a .44 [.44 Special/.44 magnum] or .45 [.45 Colt] caliber bullet.

Freddie, any chance you have access to a scale that weighs in grains, and a caliper to measure the base diameter? That would help determine the cartridge it came from.

hello
thank for the precision
