    Length of WWII US 3-inch M79 AP Shot

    Hi,

    Could someone confirm the overall length of the 3-inch M79 AP shot?

    What would also be very useful to know would be the length of a 3-inch M62 APC shot that has lost its caps?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Excellent. That equals 231mm. After some further digging around, I believe the length of an uncapped M62 shot is about 200mm.
