.43 Spanish

In 1867 the Spanish military upgraded their rifles with the Remington Rolling block chambered in the 11.15x58mmR cartridge. This cartridge goes by many names including the .433 Spanish, 11mm Spanish and the most widely know as the .43 Spanish. The Remington Rolling block was introduced in 1864 and is a breech loading rifle that has an extremely strong action. Remington manufacture it until 1918 in numerous calibers including smokeless cartridges like the .30-06, 7×57 Mauser and the 8x50mmR Lebel.

After WW II the .43 Spanish became popular in the U.S. as it was sold as surplus. Initially, the ammunition was available, but it has now become difficult to find and is a collector’s item. It is capable of propelling a .439” dia. 387 grain bullet at 1,380 fps with 1,636 ft.-lbs. of energy.
