Mystery solid shot projectile

Need help identifying this solid shot. It weighs 9.4 kg, 12 inches high, and 3.5 inches in width. The seller could only go so far as to say it was British (perhaps). Could it be a 3.7-inch gun armor-piercing solid shot?

To me it looks more like a rocket warhead.
Are you sure it is free from explosives?
