    Default Large Swedish Casing ID Help

    SOLVED
    Hello, i recently acquired 2 casings from my deceased grandfathers house and i would like to know what one of them is and what kind of gun it was fired with, i know from my mother that he was in the Swedish military around 1970-2000 (not sure when he quit or if he even did), one of the casings is from a "Bofors 40 mm Automatic Gun L/70" but the other very large one is unknown. its about 61½cm long and 13-14cm wide at the bottom (not the very bottom but just over the "lip") the top is around 11cm wide (its bent after being fired so its probably 10-11cm, it weighs around 5.6kg, bottom has "07172001" stamped 2 times and "06679002" stamped as well, there are no other stamps or marks on the cylinder which makes finding anything very hard.
    let me know if anything else is needed!
