An air-cavity high explosive charge which accelerates a steel projectile of mass 5.7 grams to a velocity of 4.3 km per second, or a nickel projectile of mass 6.0 grams to 4.0 km per second, is described. Reproducibility of projectile mass obtained with this design represents a considerable improvement over earlier designs for these velocities.
