    That is most definitely a Harpun HW-520 steel wad !

    They are manufactured in Denmark, and a guy by the name of Casper S. from HelarcoUS was here in the US trying to market them with the hopes of manufacturing them here in the US and getting a contract with some shotshell manufacturer. If they came from a factory shell, then this suggests that maybe this happened. In any event, they are an excellent-excellent wad, with some great engineering put into them (read: "honeycomb" cushion section). They have design input from Ivan Vagner himself, - the original designer of the VP wads (Vagner Plast). This is a very interesting find...

    When they were being sold here in the US not too long ago, they were going for $109/case shipped to your door. But the website went off the air, and Casper S. since disappeared.
