I have new infos on this shell

Length 122 mm
head diameter 50mm
neck Diam 43mm
inside neck diameter 41 mm
rim thickness 1,5 mm

this looks to be 41 x 122 R and not 42 x 120 R in fact !!
any idea ?

Jean-Pierre, this one looks much like one for the salute guns. I have a similar one in 55x103R. HS is as yours just with the number “93 D/3”.
