Hi All,

Does anyone have data on the size of these shell boxes ; and number of shells per box . Diamensions ie lenght x width x height of the boxes would be usefull.
If possible, give actual bore sizes (inches) of these guns too.

thanks

Hi Admin,
Thanks for sending the link to the ofifcial RML 9 pounder handbook. It did eventually open. Quite detailed ballistic information is given . I will read the text shortly to see if the shell packaging is described.


thanks,
