.43 Greek


#1

Here are a couple of close-ups from the UMC broadside we were discussing on the thread for the .45-60 What Cheer. I would date this broadside between 1880-1884.

It shows a .43 Greek cartridge. Anyone know anything about it?

Isn’t this the same case as the 11mm (.43) Gras ?

WBD–It could be. Since no dimensions are given, it is hard to tell. Greece did adopt the 11x59R Gras in Dec. 1877, so the date would be about right.
