Remington 11 mm Mannlicher & 7.62x54R for Honduras


#1

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.
