    The cartridge case markings "N/S 164-048" refer to the use of a Picrite based based propellant "N" in slotted tubular configuration "/S" the external diameter being 164/1000 of an inch and the internal diameter being 048/1000 of an inch.


    Other visible markings are the lot number of the filled cartridge showing that it was filled at Royal Ordnance Factory Glascoed (GD) in February 1965 under lot VC48868.
    any live or dug ordnance. small arms ammunition etc in my posts have been dealt with accordingly

    Thanks Exat, does anyone know anything about the 155. I'm assuming it's a target prac round fitted with a dummy fuze and very heavy.

    i've uncovered some numbers on the 105 and discovered that its a L45A2 Smoke round thats been repainted. So i think a little restoration is due.
