Austrian brass shell (Berndorf 1910 R)
Permalink   


Hi everyone, I need help trying to identify this brass shell, which company manufactured it and what type of shell is it? The dimensions are as follows: length 58 cm, width at the base 9.5 cm, width at the top 8 cm. Also, what does the R stand for? Thanks!

Berndorf is the manufacturer. The shell case seems a bit long for the Austro-Hungarian M5 but this may be the gun type: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8_cm_FK_M._5

The cartridge for the M5 gun was quite a lot smaller - about 28cm long. (Image from the BCON website)

Charlie

An Austria-Hungary historian in twitter told me it could be a 10 cm round from a Skoda K10 naval gun. I have been told before that the case is too long for a field gun. What do you think?

 

Regards,

Felipe.
