Ammunition Data Tables


#1

I have just updated and extended my Ammunition Data Tables covering military ammunition from anti-tank rifle and HMG rounds up to 128mm calibre. See: quarry.nildram.co.uk/ammotables.htm

I would be most grateful to be notified of any errors or omissions which anyone finds.

I intended to extend the calibre range upwards in due course.

A few that are missing are the following:

Austro-Hungarian 7cm M99 Mountain gun. The case dimensions for this are:

Mouth Dia.: 74mm
Case length: 63mm
Rim diameter: 82mm

There is another odd case I have which measures 75 x 330R, rim 92mm. The only headstamp is “L.37.” In identical font to French cases from around 1900. There is a similar case with a 90mm rim listed in Robert Hawkinson’s list as “Possibly French for the Boers”. So I also believe this is what this case could be. I know nothing else about it, it was a car boot sale find.

There is also the 100 x 92R (111mm rim). This is similar the the British 3.7" Howitzer, but is marked “95MM SP & INF”. Mine is dated 1944.

Finally, you list the 76.2x405R 12 Pounder 12 CWT which is the fixed round. There is also the separately loading one which was 78 x 390R with a 104mm rim.

When you plan to go above 128mm, I can give you the dimensions for the Case for the British 6" Mark 5 Naval gun.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for that - by “mouth diameter 74mm” do you mean the internal or external diameter? It’s the first I’m interested in.


#4

The “mouth diameter” given for all those cases is the internal diameter.


#5

Another round that you could add is 13 x 81B (Rim 18mm). This is the rare .600/500 Experimental round for the British WW1 Godsal anti-tank rifle.

Thanks again! I’m making a little list for the next update…
