    Russian 45mm Canister Rounds

    Up till now, I have not even seen a picture of the 45mm canister rounds anywhere. The bakelite version was offered to me by an old collector in the USA who is getting out of the game. After I bought the bakelite, I was asked if I wanted the steel version also. So, I bought both. He put a high price on them, and I paid it. The bakelite is approx. 240 mm long and the steel one is about 220mm. The bakelite is a Sch-240, and the steel is a Sch-243. Both complete rounds share the same designation as USch-243.

    Hi

    Soviet cannon book says the bakelite one is SHCH210 (щ-210) and the steel one is SHCH240 (щ-240) (old type)

    Thank you for the drawings. However, I note that the details on the construction of the steel version in your document are not correct. There are no bakelite parts in the steel version, and it does not mention the three steel segments inside the steel outer shell. I used the designations from: http://www.russianammo.org/Russian_A...e_57mm.html#24. There are two types of bakelite projectiles with the longer one being the Sch-210. It seems the lengths from all the sources do not match my examples. So, I agree that the bakelite example I have could be a Sch-210. I also have two other references that show the steel version as the Sch-240, so this could be correct also. The attached Finnish document shows the correct steel construction.

    I have attached more documentation from the Russian 45mm ammo manuals. They only discuss the Sch-240 canister projectile, but I cannot tell if this is bakelite or steel. The complete round is listed as the USch-243.
