    The projo is probably a 6-INCH given 150.4 = 5.92 when you convert it. The length also matches the 6-INCH HE rounds. No idea which one it might be though.
    Are there any other markings on the fuze? Might help to pin point the country that used it.

    I don't believe it's a fuze, but a screw in plug that someone has cracked trying to force it out. I'll work on pulling it when I get more time(?). I can find no marks anywhere on anything. Light pitting may have destroyed everything, but I'd have though something would be left.

    Another successful SLICS. Drove a lot of miles, spent a lot of money. We were gifted a number of heavy pieces from a small museum that has lost their storage area and could not ship anything out due to the weight and cost. We bought a number of books and documents then were given about 250lbs of documents and cartridge collector journals (IAA back to the 1960s, ECRA German and English, Australian Cartridge Collectors, New Zealand Cartridge Collectors, Czech, Slovak, etc.). Loaded the replacement truck to (past) the limit, then put about 600-700lbs in a friends vehicle. That includes another 200lbs of FMs and TMs plus overflow ordnance, 5-inch naval rounds etc. No pics of that load yet, I hope to see it delivered next weekend.

    I'll be looking for some ID assistance on one of the projos (black 5-inch (?), the cut-away warhead, and the yellow bomb. Have not had time yet to examine everything closely, but overall we did well.

    I saw more BOCN members present than ever before, all appeared to be thoroughly enjoying themselves -
