    Sub calibre tank training rounds

    Any one have anything on the sub calibre tank training rounds for RAC tank gunnery WW2, .22 Parker Hale 2 pounder and the .303 Parker Hale 6 pounder rounds. Cant see anything on the web.

    I have seen one of the .22 subcal adapters for the 6pr years ago, it looked on the outside to be a standard looking wooden drill round, until on closer inspection it had a .22 barrel running through the center of it. I am sorry i dont have a picture or docs to share.
    Best regards Weasel.

    Going by memory, but I believe that the one on the right is a Parker Hale, is it the one you are looking for?

    Another sub-cal I don't think I ever got around to identifying. Have to put it on my to-do list.

    I thought there might be a section diagram of one. I did see some where a book that had American sub calibre shells for 75mm but cant seem to find where.

    I think I've seen them in the back of the TMs on the guns, typically the recoilless.

    Here is another .22 sub-cal, together with a drill round for Mks IX and X Guns. The sub-cal is by Parker Hale (I suspect they all were, on contract) and has the usual broad arrow acceptance mark. The small cartridge carrier for the breech is missing.DSCN0506[1].jpgDSCN0508[1].jpgDSCN0507[1].jpg

    JO - Your subcal is British made using .303 for the Bofors 37mm AT gun. There seem to be several in the US. I had one and sold it to the owner of a Bofors gun.
