It appears to me, that Nathan Okuns calculation potentially underestimates the explosive effect of HE shells, as it is in contradiction to the findings of say german (non systematic) tests.

I'd be curious as to the bursting charge as a percentage of weight on common types compared to high explosive rounds.
I guess what I am trying to ask is that perhaps Okun's calculations are meant for HE or HC rounds as opposed to common rounds?
"Special common" had about a 2 lb bursting charge. AA common had more like 7 or 8 lb.
