From the .43 Egyptian Post, seeing that Remington was making Berdan primers in several sizes, even during and after WW I,
here is the question…Did Remington ( or any other US maker) make Berdan primers purely as Components for the Warring Parties in WW I?
WE know they made loaded ammo with Boxer primers ( .303, 7,62x54R, 8x50R Lebel, etc…) but what about those countries with a national Berdan system in their ammo? Since Rem-UMC used a .250, a .217 and a .216 diameter Berdan, were there any “primer only” contracts for such countries as Britain, France, Neutral Sweden ( which used .216) etc??
Just Lateral Thinking…as Rem, USCCo, and WRA did supply various lots of “Components” for loading Cartridges in the receiving Countries.
