    Does anyone have any information on the projectile types, or photographs of specimens in their collections?

    The concave base cases are typical of Schneider manufacture.

    The official caliber was 75 x 687 R. The gun was also used by Poland and as a captured gun by the Germans as 7,5 cm Flak L/59 (p) or 7,5 cm SK C/33. A steel case was manufactured by Polte for the German navy. I only have some info on the Polish cartridge and the German case.

    Some info about the projectiles here: http://www.navweaps.com/Weapons/WNFR_3-50_m1922.php

    There is a small drawing of a complete round in Campbell's Naval Weapons of WW2, but the one of the projectile already posted here is better.
