    May I request a drawing showing the dimensions of a 17 pdr APCBC projectile? I do not have one, and I have an order to make six resin reproductions for a chap in the US who has an Achilles M10 tank destroyer. I do have an AP shot that I can use for most of the dimensions. What I need to know most is the length of the projectile and length of the piercing cap/ballistic cap. Thank you for your help.

    If nobody has the official blueprint specs I can try to get a rough measurement of mine for you - I have an APC as well as the APCBC.

    Thank you, Jeff. Harry in the UK sent me a drawing, so I am good. How about some pictures of your two projectiles?

    Here is a 17 pounder case that just sold on ebay in the US for almost $450. Interesting, I was selling 17 pounder cases in the US over a year ago, and I could not find anyone willing to pay $200. However, it is marked as a No. 2, and it has no crimp on the neck. That makes it an APDS case by my understanding. Canadian made also - I believe.
