    shell case filling of 2 pounder pom pom

    Who can help me on what type and shape the powder in a 2 pounder 40×158mmR pom pom shellcase with a HE shell is?
    A good description, but preferably a drawing will do.
    Thanks in advance,
    DJH

    Thanks, but I mean the shellcase. By now I have found out it is HSCT .134-.055 inch dia cordite powder. What does HSCT stand for , and was the bundle of sticks tied together with string(s)?

    If you wish to make a sectioned round I can take a photo of mine tomorrow. I found a diagram of a sub-cal powder charge for you too. Will send to you.

    Charge, Q.F. 2 Pr, Mk I & III Guns, 3 oz 124 gr, Cordite, Size 7½. Mk III. Jul 1917, §18797. Approved Oct 1915. This Mk III charge was 3 oz 124 gr cordite, size 7½, it consisted of a cylindrical core of 4.5 inch cordite sticks tied in the centre with silk sewing, with an outer ring of 5.0 inch cordite sticks tied in two places with silk sewing. A recess was formed in the base of the charge to fit over the plain portion of the percussion primer. For L.S., cotton sewing was used as an alternative for tying the charge.

    Cordite H.S.C.T. is similar to Cordite S.C. (solventless cordite) but has a higher N.G. content and lower carbamite content.

    Thus H.S.C.T. = Higher (N.G. content), Solventless Cordite, Tubular.

    Hi Pzrg40,
    I have this picture of a sea recovered 2pr showing the cordite and how it was tied up.
    Best regards Weasel.
