Wow, it never stops. According to some sources, there appears to be a longer StuK shellcase. I have the length of the PAK40 complete 7,5 cm AP39 round (969.2mm) and its shellcase (Patronenhülse) is 714mm. While researching the KWK/StuK related dimensions, I came across this. My primary source states the KWK/StuK 40 should be 495mm case. But...
7,5 x 49,51 Patronenhülse (6339) der 7,5 cm KwK 40
7,5 x 51,4 cm Patronenhülse (6310) des Stu.G. Ig 7,5 K
Yes, the experimental L40 had a complete round length of 794mm.
