    British 76 mm M/64 Shell Case

    Hi,

    Can anyone help with more information on this shell case?

    The headstamp is "76 mm M/64 MK7" and "RLB-8- "

    The case length is approx. 583mm.

    Any info. greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Gary

    Hi Tony,

    Your chart was the first place I looked!

    The diameter of the case rim is 111 mm so I presume this is a British manufactured case for the US 3-inch L/50 naval gun.

    Does the headstamp (76 mm M/64 MK.7) indicate which country it was produced for?

    Thanks again,

    Gary

    Seems an odd one to me - sorry, I don't know what it is.
