    Looks to be an early 20mm Hispano AP,minus the bakelite cap.
    With the cap fitted it would have the same profile as the standard Ball projectile

    That looks spot on, many thanks. Any idea of age and how common? I don't collect this type of ordnance so a learning curve.

    The pub. this info came from was dated 1942, superseded shortly after by the SAP/SAPI rounds.
