7x57 Mauser headstamp “AG-ROU 1946” from Uruguay

Hi all,

At Uruguay there is no writing information about this unit, just wandering if someone in the IAA have more information about this it.

AG: Arsenal de Guerra
ROU: Republica Orientetal del Uruguay
1946: year of manufacturing. This is the only year known.

The only information is that after WW-II there were lack of material (or it was to expensive to import) and the Army decide to manufacture it locally.

Any information will be appreciated



In the book “Headstamp Guide: Military 7mm Mauser Ammunition”, by Ken Elks, Solo Publications 2017, there is a one page chapter on cartridge manufacture in Uruguay.

Really thank you Vidar for this information
