There are a number of models of this shell going back to I believe 1873 (gun Mle 1873/88). I have always thought that these guns were bag charge and did not use shell cases. My question - were any of these shells from the 9 cm Gr 82 onward ever fitted to a case (separate load) and used with this or any other model of gun that did not use bag charge?
Thanks in advance.
Always looking for projectiles, cases, fuzes and paperwork related to Burney and Davis guns.
No cases for these.
I don't totaly agree with you
I have seen a (only one) case , certainly for a Flak conversion of this old caliber.
Logical, when you think that a normal fire with a pownder bag is too long and too difficult when the gun fires verticaly.
