    25MM French Anti Tank Shells

    I have not posted for a while so here are a couple of French 25mm anti tank rounds. The one on the left/lower is a tracer round and the other is a solid base. The appropriate core is located with each projectile.

    It is also the biggest gun that has a projectile without a drivingband. So in fact it's no shell, but a bullet.

    Thank you for the reply and information. In the US we consider anything larger than small arms (50 cal and below) to be a projectile or shell. I have seen some people refer to a 15mm limit, however, in the Army publications (FM's/TMs) that I have, 20MM appears to be the cut off. Probably because we do not designate or have weapons between 50cal and 20mm that I am currently aware of. Regards,
