Hi. Does anyone know the weight of explosive filler in an HE shell fired by the Italian Breda 20/65 Model 35?

I don't know about how Italian production might have differed, but since the Breda used the same 20 x 138B ammo as the German 2 cm Flak 30/38 etc I would assume that the HE contents would be comparable. These included:

117 g HEI-SD = 20 g HEI

115 g HE-T SD = 7 g HE (the tracer takes up a lot of space)

Hope this helps.
