Some may remember my thread on the 120mm cartridge - viewtopic.php?t=8352
Well, I have another itch that needs scratched.
I have a 75mm case (or two) and think I need an M-309 projectile. Since I can’t seem to find one, I suppose I will build one.
This project will be on my metal lathe. I need to practice my skills - or perhaps develop my skills? - on the metal lathe. I like to turn aluminum because it is easy, so this project will be aluminum unless I can stumble upon an appropriate sized chunk of steel. So far I have produced a couple of projectile “fuzes” from aluminum.
Anyway, does anyone have the measurements for the M-309 projectile for the 75mm Recoilless Rifle? I have a M-557 PD fuze I will be using.
I have some photos of the projectiles and TM 43-0001-28. If I have to, I will draw it out in my CAD program. Close enough will be close enough, since I am not trying to fool anyone (aluminum, remember?).
Thanks in advance.
