    138 mm casing

    Hi

    I am trying to identify a casing - no paint or stencil markings unfortunately - or primer.

    The mouth is 138.5 mm and the length is 820 mm.

    The base has stamping/engraving of "Ast M" "S14".

    I have been thinking along the lines of the French 138-mm guns?

    Thanks

    Doug

    Possible Bofors case

    Looks like a "Bofors" case with that heavy build and primer pocket.
