Thanks guys. It looked bigger in the picture he sent me, I figured it was a military round just didn’t know what kind.
It probably is a 30-06. And I will see if he can put it up next to a round or a tap measure, he doesn’t reload so he doesn’t have calipers

When I was a kid my dad had ammo cans full of those. I agree they look like 30-06 military loads...we just used them as “pocket rockers” to scare elk and deer out of aspen pockets.

Looks perhaps Berdan primed? Could it be something close to .30-06 like, say 8mm Mauser or 7.5 Swiss, or are other's eyes better than mine at reading that headstamp?

Probably not if indeed .30-06 and corrosive for sure regardless. Just that the OD of the primer looks a bit large for a std large primer. Could be the crimp is misleading my poorly calibrated eyeball.
