    .50- 40mm

    Time on my hands. For display at shows, insures against sticky fingers. Good symmetry.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    I'm not sure what your design requirements are, but if you want to expand it, you could add the 30mm DEFA fired by the Apache, and the 30mm ADEN that was carried on the first Harriers we purchased from the UK.

    hello
    for a "complete" set you can add

    30x113 DEFA (used in M230 apache gun)
    35x228 oerlikon
    40x365 BOFORS L70

    all the modern rounds used by "nato" forces

    I used cartridges on hand, I would love to " expand", but my primary interest is large caliber tank and artillery rounds. I am hunting a 37mm WW2 dated complete cartridge for now to complete a reasonable WW2 forward era collection. Anyone have one for sale? Watching this site for two years plus sparks envy and respect for individuals lucky enough to have acquired many pieces when ordnance was considered worthless door stops. Many thanks to those that participate in this website and share your wealth of knowledge. Thank you.

    There were quite a few different WW2 era 37mm tank/anti-tank gun rounds. I don't actually specialise in these, but I've picked up a few: see the sixth and seventh groups HERE.

    Very impressive. I bookmarked for future ID purposes. Thank you. Are they offered for sale?

    No, I don't generally trade in ammo, I just collect what I want (or have a replica made, if I can't find the real thing).
