    Sebastian, The M314 is not listed in the 1944 version of TM 9-1901 Artillery Ammunition, but it is listed in the 1950 version. So it came out after 1944 and before 1950.

    No ww2 era date. M314 is shown as ww2 in our school (?!). I assume french used it and made copy in the 50's.

    I have an M314A1 dated 1954. My limited ( amateur) research shows the M314 was post war, the A1 1950's.
