    You're talking about the standard HE shell? With or without the cartridge casing/propellant?

            25lb Bomb

            If you want the exact mesurments of the 25 lb bomb, you could contact a [Mod: Snip. Send names of serving personnel via PM please, OPSEC and all that.] in the Arty School in the DFTC..I believe he is the key man in the Artillery when it comes to Ammo...
