    Some Info:

    Germen Artillery shrapnel Shells

    7.7 cm Shrapnel contained 300 gm lead balls 45 to the lb.
    The 7.7 cm Ballonkanone was a German 77 mm anti-aircraft gun of the Great War. The 7.7 cm Ballonkanone fired a 7.85 kg shrapnel shell to an effective ceiling of 3050 meters with a muzzle velocity of 485 meters-per-second.

    Not sure if this is the same info you require, I have no pics, but I will look...

    thanks,
    recently during mine clearance task near sarajevo, bosnia and herzegovina we have found aprox a dozen of bursting rounds that we identified as 7,7 cm shrapnel shells. on same task we also found several brixia mod 1935 grenades and few PAK 3,7 cm rounds.
    i did some research and i have found that on that spot was german railway depot during wwii. now i am confused that wwi ammo remaining is found next to wwii uxo.
