I have this 105mm cartridge, 50cm long. The headstamps are 371 and sp255. It has a slight taper towards the neck although no obvious shoulder and I dont think it has been cut down.What gun might it be for?
Sorry, I was unable to photograph the base because its covered in paint. The only other discerable mark is "patronenfabrik" so I think its native german. As you say, the Germans used a lot of 105mm guns but most of the ones in my references have cartridges about 20cm tall. Although it looks scruffy it has few dents and should clean up well.
