Daryl, I think that it is likely a rammer detached from one of the Cartridge reloading machines, illustrated in David Bakers book, British Handloading Cartridge Tools
Best regards

Found this:

https://americanlongrifles.org/forum/index.php?topic=15730.0

The tool in question looks a lot like rammer part of the seating tool in the link.
The hollowed tip of the tool in the link looks rather chewed up, but you never know what stuff like this has been used for outside of it's orig intent.

Roy and Kutter and others, I think you are on the right track. I just dug out this seating tool [pictured along side the item in question] . It comes with one of those heavy hexagonal barrel muzzle loading target rifles. Obviously made for that rifle which is a concoction of a Golcher lock and a barrel that appears to have been on another gun.
