    Perhaps you could give a couple of measurements,length of case only,diameter of projectile,both in MM`s.

    The closest thing I can find is that it might be Russian as used in the T34-85 tank gun.

    Hmm... I'm not so sure, since that letter doesn't exist in the Cyrillic alphabet. Perhaps it was manufactured by some other country that used the Soviet 85mm gun?

    looks like a 76mm for the scorpion thats minus the drive band and/or been pushed to far into an older incorrect cartridge,,
    Can you double check the markings on the fuze, the records i have show SX134A is the markings on the PRF (plug representing fuze L17)

    attached images show some 76mm practice rounds found at work and one of a friend
