37x95R from 1943

For some reason, I measure the length as 92.5mm, not 95mm. Did someone cut it or it is normal?

Vlad, According to Mellicamps book that is normal. From what I read we continued to use a broader rotating band for the Mk 1 (used in the M1916 Infantry Gun) instead of the double bands the French used and the cases were made shorter to accommodate that. Cheers, Bruce.
