I have been cataloging my Mauser cartridges including several 43 Mauser (11.15x60R) cartridges. I found an interesting thread in the forum about this cartridge.
Thank you, Dutch, for your headstamp checklist.
I have the last one that Dutch lists, which is U.M.C. U.S.A. An image of this headstamp can be seen at municion.org in the 11.15x60R listing. I have never seen this headstamp on any other cartridge. My questions are:
- What is the time frame for this headstamp?
- Did UMC use this headstamp on any other cartridge, if so, which ones?
- If this h/s was only used for the 43 Mauser, was it for a foreign military contract or was it for sporting purposes abroad?
