Thanks for that.

Do you have any more data on the rounds - rim diameter, shell weight, muzzle velocity or the time period when used?

I can just send you the rim diameter.
And perhaps the weight if I find a scale.

The rim diameters would be fine, thanks. It’s the projectile weight I need, not the case.

!!!
Most of the shells had no projectile on them and I didn’t take the ones with a round on it, except the AP British one.
Even my shotshells are empty, I’m not gonna start to pile up big heavy rounds !
As soon as my book is finished I will check my drawings of big rounds and I am sure I will have some interesting info. But you need to be patient.
