Thank you very much for sharing this and the other drawings.

Note that the drawing also includes information on Rifle Grenade and Illuminating Grenade cartridges.
Note also the large number of changes made to the drawing- 10 in 1917-1918. It is hard to tell what those changes were, but probably minor revisions to tolerances and the like.

THANK YOU for posting all of these, and for McCracken making them available.
