    Hi Waff,

    Donít get me wrong but it seems a bit strange that your planning to spend a large amount of money (I presume?) on a 88x882R round but you donít have a picture or any info on it?

    There are some good reference books out there (German artillery of world war two by Ian V Hogg springs to mind) which should help.

    Re:King Tiger Round

    Ah,good question my good man!
    its from a private collector who is known to my good pal and mentor Mick.
    I have much faith in my old mucker!
    it may be even late on next year when the round becomes available as the owner is shifting interest in collecting(say german to russian for example)
    I have first dibs on it,so i was wondering what one looked like.
    Its a lot of cash,so much saving up first!.

    thanks for the pic Harry,
