The Armstrong M1915 76/30 had a "standard" H.E shell weighing 4.28Kg. But do we know what the weight of the H.E filler was?
Cheers; Dave.

Can you read the pages concerning the munitions? I can't they are too blurred. But you did well to find anything at all. Thank you.
Cheers; Dave.

I made a mistake it appears the round in 76/30 was 4,28kg , but i have references for 6,0 and 6,5kg for 76/40, the first is probably the correct one and 6,5 a mistake for 6,05kg

All this data for Regiamarina guns.

Weight of TNT filling of 6.050kg projectiles was 0,50kg, complete round was 9,635kg - this was the 76/40 round.

The link by madmike shows different rounds and fillings, i can read them well, when you click them they don't pop up bigger?. They show the filling black powder in first 4 and the one with tritolo have also an old naming.
