    This is just a guess, but I read somewhere that the French did some experimenting with a caseless 25 mm. The long "tail" of this projectile could be useful to mould solid propellant around....?

    hasag,

    I took the liberty of posting your 25mm projectile on the IAA Forum as part of a discussion there concerning an unknown 25mm projectile. The result is you projectile was identified as being for a French experimental caseless cartridge:

    "This 25 mm projectile was made at Bourges for a caseless round project (25x102) developed in France by SNPE (Société Nationale des Poudres et Explosifs).

    Regards,

    Fede"
