    The 105 shells are the old ones that were spiral wrap type. Also have a 30mm from GAU-8 A10 Warthog and a pair of 40mm shells from a WWII Bofars 40mm anti aircraft cannon. They all make for very good conversation pieces. I wish I could get a shell for a 155 cannon but very hard to come by now.

    Just joined..have to find a new picture hosting app, as imgur now sucks.

    I have..INERT.WW2 .40 mm naval antiaircraft round with all 3 pieces marked 41, 42 & 43.

    20mm training grenades.

    And ..INERT...2- M2A1 1950s mustard gas mortars. I found a heavy mortar collector site and bought ( not correct) inert fuses for display. But they look cool! Got 1 shell powder coated olive green. Still working on making them pretty. They are impressive. Got them from a local certified military salvage specialist. She could not sell them, so I did some trading for them.

    The projectiles from the Iowa Class battleships are the biggest rounds I've stood next to. Very impressive indeed!
