    Unknown 20mm?

    A friend of mine pick this up and doesn't know what it is neither do I. Looks to be a 20mm/25mm shell. Any ideas what it is?
    Thanks

    30mm ADEN LV (Low Velocity) Practice, or the US equivalent of the time (late'40's-early '50's).
    Looks to still be live?.

    I recently got a very similar one that is a US 30mm T158 TP round (T241 projectile).

    It looks identical to yours except it still has the paint. Is there any markings on the drive band or the rim of the case?
