The bullet looks like a .22 Rimfire. Photos of nose and base, together with a better scale needed to be sure though. .22 Rimfire is used for small vermin/pests such as rabbits.

The bullet is definitely a solid lead .22 Rimfire. ::g Some have a hollow point but the hollow point type usually distort into a mushroom shape on impact.
The solid type are used for shooting small animals/birds but are more often associated with target shooting in modern times.

Could be a possible pipe tamper with reamer and suspension loop.
Could be to do with Georgian / Victorian domestic bell ringing system.
I wouldn't throw it away.. interesting find. ::g
