    WW2 Russian 45mm anti-tank (H.E) rounds


    Recommended Posts


    I thought you may like to see this full case of Soviet anti-tank rounds I picked up the other day.

    The rounds are dated 1936,1938 and 1939.

    Will fit in nicely with my new found passion,ordnance!

    All comments appreciated!

    Enjoy the pics!

    Kind regards,

    Russian black market, maybe!


    I dont know if they are obtainable as I would think that their removal would be part of the de-mil/deactivation process. Even if the primers are not live.

    I would check with your local law enforcement before I altered these rounds in any way.

    By the way, I really like how they are so well marked! Nice set! Do you have any other ordinance?

    Best regards

    I hope you have a deactivation certificate with them for a number of reasons.

    Especially as you live in UK.

    Having once having some one kick what he thought was a dud which turned out to be 155mm WP...on blowing as a blind....as I explained to him...if you don't know what it is...it is to be treated as live.

    Hi Chris,

    a deactivation certificate isn't needed for inert ordnance in the UK.

    Although technically,you do need one for deactivated firearms.

    They must be inert, the shell cases are completely empty!

    Kind regards,

    I take it you're referring to the inside of the projectile,where the explosive would have been?

    In what way is it toxic,and can it be rectified?

    Kind regards,

    I think they don't have an explosive charge because they are AP. They have a core of some kind of special metal-alloy which shall be toxic. I'll try to find the source of this information. I read it some months ago in another forum.
