One For Militaria Aficionados

We were visiting a friend this week and he showed us some of his collection.  This heavy leather antique was made at the Rock Island Arsenal in 1918, and I don't want to hazard a guess what it is for.  Comments are welcome!

I’m going to say it’s a muzzle cover for something that makes a loud boom!

Maybe a feed bag for horses?

It looks like it's made of leather, so it wouldn't spark.
I'm going with some kind of propellant bag/bucket.
