    You beat me to the punch. I just found one in the US a week ago, and I am still waiting for delivery. I have never seen pictures or any kind of Russian manual on this ammunition.

    Mine arrived, and it is just beautiful. It looks like a 53-O-361D high explosive shell. It came with a bakelite fuse hole plug - first time I have seen that for a Russian round. I even got a powder bag. Does anyone have a spare T5 fuse?

    Nice one Steve. Powder bags AND the lead wire for anti-fouling.
    ALL ORDNANCE SHOWN BY ME HAS BEEN INERTED AND HAS NO LIVE FILLERS.
