Nimrod Cartridges - 9.3x75R


#1

Below is a page from a NIMROD GEWEHRFABRIK, THIEME & SCHLEGELMILCH catalog which I found on the Internet.

This is the only Nimrod catalog that I am aware of. There is mention of a 1914 Nimrod catalog in Russian sites and this may well be the same one.

Apart from a RWS factory drawing, this is the first catalog I have seen the 9.3x75 Nimrod cartridge shown in.

Does anyone else know of this catalog and if so are there other pages showing ammunition ?

Does “drill” stand for “drilling”?

Pictures are very similar to those published on the ALFA catalog, although they show some differences in the markings

Yes Pivi - those 11.15x65R were often used in Drillings.

The catalogs of retailers often used images from manufacturers catalogs. The Alfa catalog is a good example -just about all the ammunition images in the 1911 Alfa catalog came from RWS, DWM, GECADO etc catalogs. The Nimrod one looks to be the same. So that 9.3x75R may actually be from an early unknown (to me) catalog.
