    155mm A.P. Projectile USA WW2

    Hello,

    I have this projectile in my collection but it is missing the ballistic cap.
    Does anybody have pictures or drawings with dimensions of this projectile because maybe i want to make a cap myself.
    Or does anybody has a spare cap for sale?

    Thank you

    Greetings,

    I have a projectile that has a cap that isn't attached. My projo doesn't have a rotating band, so I could use the measurements of the rotating band. Ill take some photos and post of my cap and body.

    Hi,


    I think it's the 100lb M112. see "Handbook of ballistic and engineering data for ammunition volume 3"
