    They look like 20mm Oerlikon for the 128mm and 139mm cases,though the ones in the middle could also be for the 102mm case.
    Or i could be totally wrong!

    Mike - I can't for the life of me remember what it's called but as I have one on my desk in front of me I thought I would take a few pictures for you to assist in determining what they are. Hope this is helpful. MarcusP1030603.jpgP1030604.jpgP1030608.jpgP1030610.jpgP1030614.jpg

    The projectiles look like 30x170.

    Mike are they definitely 30mm? It looks a lot like the one Marcus shows but I can't see any ridge between the aluminium cap and the body of the projectile.

    Marcus the projectile on yours looks a lot like the Rarden 30mm L18A1 practice, characterised by the slight ridge between the body and the aluminium top that is wedge fitted into the projectile.

    Dave.
