11.43x50Rmm Egyptian A.K.A. .43 Egyptian

Sold to the Egyptian Military in 1868, by Remington, the 11.43x50Rmm Egyptian also know as the .43 Egyptian was introduced. The Egyptian government had issues meeting payments and Remington sold all 60,000 rifles and ammunition to the French who used it in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. The .43 Egyptian was also used in the Mahdist War of 1881 – 1899 and was in service until the end of World War I.

In 1870 the Egyptians began receiving the .43 Egyptian and the order was completed in 1876. It is estimated that Remington made approximately 90 million rounds in this caliber.  The original cartridge was of brass and copper construction designed for Remington’s No. 1 Military rolling block rifle. The .43 Egyptian is capable of propelling a .448” dia. 400 grain bullet at 1,330 fps with 1,571 ft.-lbs. of energy.
