10.6x47R Russian Berdan Carbine

The 10.6x47R Russian Berdan Carbine was adopted by the Russian cavalry in 1870. It is a shorter version of the 10.75x58Rmm Russian Berdan rifle that was adapted in 1868. Both of these cartridges used the Berdan primers and large quantities of ammunition was made in the U.S. by Remington and Winchester. These models were in service until 1897 when they were replaced by the 7.62x54Rmm Russian cartridge.

The 10.75x58Rmm saw extensive service in both WW I and WW II. During its service life it was known for its power and accuracy. The 10.6x47R Russian Berdan Carbine is capable of propelling a .426” dia. 370 grain paper patch bullet at 1,060 fps with 923 ft.-lbs. of energy. The 10.75x58Rmm Russian Berdan is capable of propelling a .430” dia. 370 grain paper patch bullet at 1,450 fps with 1,727 ft.-lbs. of energy.
