105 mm cartridge case - Identification

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

Welcome here Ares!
I doubt it is a 105mm (likelier 100mm). What is the exact case length?

Made in the USSR (Orsk Mechanical Factory) in 1966.

Why is Ares’ post hidden now?
There was nothing wrong with it.


Ok, what is the case length?
Or just give us a side view.

I am waiting for the height measurement value.

Ok, no need to wait. This is the 100mm case for the BS-3 field gun, KS-19 AA gun and D-10 tank gun.


Here some rounds for the D-10 tank gun:

Wow! Amazed. 👍 Thx!
Did you figure it out from the headstamps?
What do they mean?

The side view of the case with your 105mm-info was enough to ID the caliber.

The headstamp is telling the factory code #257 (at 3h pos.) and the 66 (at 9h pos.) is the year.

Nothing special in that.
