    I have one of them with an APC projectile. I don't normally collect ammo bigger than 57mm calibre, but I make an exception for ammo used in aircraft guns.

    The pic below is from 'Tankbusters', the article on my website on WW2 airborne anti-tank guns and ammo, and shows the German AP set:

    I think Steve McGregor has a couple of them for sale, the HE version and the hollow charge version - if he's not sold them already I expect he'll be taking them to Stoneleigh today and tomorrow.

    Very nice Lou......excellent to see the comparison picture. It takes a lot of hard work to successfully ship such a heavy item to the US so excellent news that Bernhard was able to get it to you safely.

    After all that time what will you do now?

    I remember there was a Pak40 for sale on Milweb. (see picture) It was pricey but looked good.

    Well the goal now is to just sit back and enjoy the shell.But a good container and an AP round "with out the case"will be the next pak40 items on the list.I have my eye on a ground dug projectile in a local shop.They want 75us for it.
