    It looks like a Hispano ball round to me. It is hard to tell but seems to be just a bright steel proj that has lost its paint. I agree the driving band has not got the chamfered forward edge but we don't know who made it.

    Regards

    Hi weasel he said there was no markings on it when I asked him I thought it might be hispano or oerlikon S but the driving band looks weird .

    It looks from that picture alone as if it is an unfinished item (like spotter questioned) but its only recognition from a picture

    Re:20mm projectile

    This is my 20mm which looks very much the same as yours apart from the driving band,The cartridge mine came with is marked 20mm ASC 1942 M21A1 ,I assume the round is original to the cart but not 100% sure

    close up of my driving band (unfired)
