    Case ID help needed

    Hello all,
    Can anyone help? My friend has this case and we can't find any info on what it is.
    It's approx the size of a regular .308/7.62 case, but the neck is a slightly larger diameter. The obvious difference here is that the primer is inside a tube which slides into the main body. It was a bit stuck, but has freed up now. The end inside case body appears burst.

    The headstamp only has RG 87, which I'm pretty confident is Radway Green, 1987. I use a lot of their products!

    Any info would be great.
    Many thanks,
    Ben

    Looks like the subcaliber round for the SMAW. https://forum.cartridgecollectors.or...riations/42810
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel
