I swear it was THIS big 

So the US military found a 155 mm artillery shell in Iraq that contained sarin gas. It exploded before it could be defused, but either the amount of sarin in the shell was small or the guys caught in the blast were standing far away, since they only suffered minor exposure to the nerve agent.

I'm no expert on ammunition, but I'd guess that 155 mm refers to the diameter of the shell. 155 mm is about 6 inches. That a pretty large meatball.

Hans Blix claims that was probably a relic from the first Gulf War, but this guy begs to differ.

I don't know if this will lead to something bigger, but stay tuned.
