Wanted: .50 round next to a 105mm artillery shell

So, I was exchanging email with the Heartless Libertarian, and the topic of CNN's absurd claim (that the .50 round was the size of a small artillery shell) came up.  It seems that the smallest artillery shell in use in the military is a 105mm howitzer round.  (That's big, folks).  Unfortunately, to really make it work, I need a picture of a .50 round next to a 105mm artillery shell.

So... anyone got one?

UPDATE: David Codrea provides these two pictures.  Not quite to scale, but they give the right impression:
  1. .50 rifle bullet next to ketchup bottles
  2. 105mm Artillery Shells (converted to vases)
Right.  Small artillery shells.  Whatever.
