domed ,brass primer
round nosed lead bullet
slight shoulder’0.500"neck
case is 2.250"long
Thanks,

Can you post a photo? It is true that, when identifying a cartridge, a picture is worth 1000 words.

However, someone may still be able to identify it from the description.


#3

I think you have some Spanish remington rounds M 71/79

The dimensional data reported fit quite well with those of the spanish cartridge


#4

I will try to post three pictures of the 43 cal cartridge and a 37 mm shell that also needs to be identified.

Frank–Nope, you didn’t quite get it right for posting images. I fixed it up so the images would appear. When you want to post an image from PhotoBucket, choose the LAST option under the picture, “[img]”.

Welcome to the Forum. Don’t worry about not figuring out the image posting right away. Lots of new members have problems wit it.

I had hoped that the picture cold be enlarged.
There ar markings on the bottom of the large shell casing.
PD u
404
1 18 37-45
and the “bomb” icon
I think that it is USA made

This sounds like a French case with the markings partly worn/polished away or badly stamped.

It should say:

37-85 PDPs 404 1.18 [Bomb]

This case was made by Pinchart Denis in Paris, France in January 1918.
