A friend of mind bought this round. I believe it is a solid turned dummy. Am I right here?
It is not very clear in the photo, but there is a red triangle painted at the top of the projectile.
Can anyone give me any more info on this round?

Can anyone provide the dimensions of the cartridge case, please?
Length and base diameter, anyway.
Thanks very much
The case is 82 x 761R, with a rim diameter of 130mm.
And it is in Robert Hawkinson's new list, which i hadn't realised when i posed the question.
.....and the red triangle is the "inert" mark made by the Czech Military.
Here a deawing.
Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .
Thanks for the replies. Is this dummy solid or does it have the finned projectile in?
You see the green colored projectile on top which should have the fin assembly attached (which is in the case). The PD fuze is also the inert version and the projectile might be filled with an inert substance or the cavity might be empty. (The Czech Army had both versions in their inventory)
Thanks for that. This round isn't mine so I didn't try to remove the projectile in case of damage.
