    4.7"

    I have the following case:
    Rim diameter 15.5cm
    Case length 40.3cm
    Mouth dia. 12cm

    Which would make it then a 120x404R 4.7\" coastal or with the 15,5cm rim a field gun case.
    Any further info is appreciated, pics, drawings, how do the projectiles look like?
    What data can you make out from the headstamp apart that it was made by EOC for Argentina RA?

    These were Elswick guns of Pattern Y that were designed for export, with guns being supplied to the Argentine, Chinese and Norwegian navies among others during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
