Hi Rickoshae I think you may be barking up the wrong tree with the "Bofors" theory.
I note that the projectile has in fact been fired from a 2 Pounder barrel as it has the distinctive discrete rifling unlike the coarse "Bofors" rifling which is must coarser.
This may or may not help you as it is by no means definitive, at one time I used to have a 40 mm Bofors HE/T projectile that HAD been fired from a
2 Pounder Barrel !
See pictures of;-
40/60 Bofors fired in 2 Pounder barrel.

Hi Dave as to why would a 40/60 Bofors round be fired in a 2 Pounder barrel-thats what they call "experimental" as many "odd" things happen to standard ammo.
For example Fuze testing may require a faster or slower "Spin" to the projectile or a higher velocity than the standard round can achieve safely in the standard gun-the list goes on !:tinysmile_eyebrow_t
So it may well be you have a "nice" experimental item there :tinysmile_shy_t:
