I thought of that but there are far too many?

As far as I know there was never a range in that area.
Maybe it's big horse I'm a Londoner. :{

I found about 25 of these in approx 2 hrs at Eastchurch Gap, Sheppey.

Wasn't sure what type of round they were?
I now have it on good authority they are "Tommy" gun rounds :)

Could be Home Guard or Garrison at Fletchers practicing?

They do look like they could be 45 ACP bullets:

But could they have been from pistols?
