Remington 11 mm Mannlicher & 7.62x54R for Honduras

Here is another interesting report with details of the Remington ammunition supplied to Honduras during the US aligned government of Miguel Paz Barahona. There are two interesting facts: 1) Except for Mexico, I think this is the first time I hear of a Latin American country using 7.62 x 54 R ammunition before the Cold War; 2) The 11 mm Mannlicher cartridge (11 x 58 R Werndl/Mannlicher) was made by Remington-UMC with a raised REM-UMC 11 m/m but has never been properly dated because it was never included in any catalog. Now at least we can say it was made in 1926.


Great info. Thanks for sharing this.
