    ID for a 35mm case

    Anyone know whose this is? Far right.

    Any dimensions? Because to my eye the second looks like a 35x228mm Oerlikon, so the far right one would be a 50x355mm Oerlikon.

    The four modern rounds are (from left to right): 30x173 GAU-8 (API loading for A-10); 30 x 170 Oerlikon KCB (formerly HS 831); 25 x 173/181 Oerlikon KBB; 27 x 145B Mauser BK 27.

    I don't have a clue as to what the 35mm case is for - case length and rim diameter are needed!
