Looks like a .27 caliber blank for nailguns. At the job site, we call them "shotguns" for some reason.

Man I love my hilti powder actuated tool... You can mount anything, anywhere with that baby. (I don't suggest using the red caps with the power turned all the way up on thin aluminum building siding though.)
