    Re:3.7 inch AA Mk6 Probert

    hope you mean a 3.7 inch Mk 6 case - they were different to the standard 3.7 inch case - taller and with a more tapered shoulder. I got rid of the case as they crimped over the driving bands and as it was a fired case, the neck had been pushed out and the shell wouldn't sit happily in it (like a 76mm Scorpion)

    Ahhh,mine is a 1949 dated MK 1 case.

    Always thought it was a MK 6 for some reason,don't know why!

    Are primers for these cases easy to come by?

    Cheers,
    Andy

    hi Andy, the primers aren't too difficult to find as long as you know what you are looking for - MkII no 11, see atached photo from the 3.7" handbook. Dave
