The sources I found are below. The last one contains scans of the HG 85 manual, though it is in German:

The filler may just be TNT, though the sources conflict on this point. Since I put up those specs above, I have found a source that claims the fragmentation liner is composed of 3mm balls, which is very close to what I calculated.
