about L7 and M68 gun barrel, for L7 there is always said "L52"(5460mm) for gun barrel length, but german L7A3 from muzzle to breech end 5347, and M68 barrel seems to have 5346mm length(only barrel) so how can L7 barrel can have "L52" ?

It is located on the sabot nor the centering ring for storage in the transport container?

On earlier Soviet 125mm APFSDS ammunition, the oburating ring was at the front of the spool sabot:
This configuration was clearly more volumetrically efficient than the NATO 120mm round design, which have the obturating ring at the back of the spool sabot.
But now the Russians have switched and are doing it the other way. Why?

That was inevitable. The projectile has become much longer. So the sabot also gets longer.
Previously, only a three-piece "traction sheave" as sabot was mounted in front. And at the tail was held yes in the barrel only by the fins with caliber span with copper nockeds. Now the sabot is much more complicated. So it was inevitable that the obturating ring would move from the front to the back.
