5" navy round vietnam era.
« on: August 04, 2018, 07:28:23 AM »
Not sure if this is possible but an older friend of mine who was in the coast guard in Vietnam. they had gunboats with 5 inch guns. He had a casing (its huge) looking for an inert projectile to go with it. I know the modern projectiles are not around as much and dangerous if not inert but I told him I would throw it out there.
