From a discussion on BOCN entitled Difference Between 3 inch and 75mm Common Shrapnel Projectiles, US. http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/threads/85560-WWI-75-Round

From the above listed discussion here is a Quote from a post by US-Subs:
" In regard to the 3-inch Common Shrapnel projectile, “The rotating band is forced into an annular groove cut into the case 1.2 inches from the base.” (page 36 para 2)

In regard to the 75mm Common Shrapnel, MKI projectile, “The rotating band of copper is forced into an annular groove1.65 inches from the base.” (page 22 para 4)"

This one measures about 1.65" between rotating band and the base.
75mm Common Shrapnel, MKI must be correct.

Thanks VERY much!
