Again, the title on this set is a little confusing. Although this ammunition is labeled as 76.2mm, this is actually the ammunition for use with the 3inch anti-tank gun (the calibres for these two weapons were very close). These shells can be used for the M5 3in AT gun (available from ACE), or for the M7 tank gun mounted on the M10 tank destroyer (available from multiple manufacturers).

As you can see in the scan below, there are 12 empty shell casings, and 3 each of 3 different types of projectile. From left to right in the picture below we have: armor piercing shot, armor piercing capped, and high explosive. Unfortunately, no HVAP (high velocity armor piercing) are included. Measurements show the parts to be spot on for 1/72nd scale.
