    German Squeeze Bore Round 28-20 Panzer Buchse

    Enclosed are pictures of an German Squeeze bore 28/20 round in excellent condition with a tungsten penetrater. I believe their is another squeeze bore round with a HE projectile. Anyhow if anyone has pics of just the projectile please post them. I remember many years ago a B-17 pilot who was station in North Africa told me in detail how this round worked. He also said the Germans left vast amounts of weapons and equipment after they were forced out of North Africa.

    Nice picture, I've got two of the proof rounds but this is the first one I've seen in a case. What is the projo number 5 from the left?
