    27.5mm Rounds

    A grouping of the 1970's Aerojet Corporation 27.5mm experimentals. The case on the left is their first design. The other rounds are an HEIT Dummy, AP-T, APFS-DS and a TPT. All of the cases are steel.

    Aerojet

    Aerojet spun off their proj buisness, ford Areo Space picked it up, then Honeywell took that over, finally it all went to Olin Corp, then Olin corp sold their defesne business to be come Primex which is not General Dynamics -Ordnance and Tactical Systems in Marion, IL (I worked for Primex and GD-OTS). The 30mm buisness was taken away from Primex and it all went to ATK. In a display case at Marion the 27.5 mm rounds you pictured were on dispaly with a number of other experimental rounds from Aerojet and Ford Aerospace.

    OH MY WORD, hum, hang on a minute while I wipe off the keyboard on my laptop, I'm drooling!!!!!!!!!!!
    They're all great but that APFSDS, man, that's just wonderful. I never even knew one existed in that calibre.
    Thanks for showing them.

    Dimensions please

    Greetings!
    A very fine selection. Would you please provide the length and rim diameter of the first case in the photo? It is , i presume , also 27.5mm caliber? Thanks very much. Charley
