    What are these ?

    Old shop clear out, these were in a tin. Seem to be some kind of anvil for old black power shooters.

    They are anvils out of centrefire ammunition primers.

    They must be antique ones then? All the ammo I reloaded with Boxer primers never had an anvil like these chunky heavy ones, and Berdan ones have the anvil as part of the case.

    Shape and size makes me thing shotgun primer anvils.
    Likely rather old, new one have a pretty distinctive shape but they've very similar.
