This is one of the earliest cartridges, developed for Mauser-type magazine rifles during the late 19th century. It was originally adopted by the Belgian army in 1889, with round-nosed FMJ bullet. Later ’twas adopted by Turkey followed by a number of South American countries, most notably the Argentinians.

It was chambered in Mauser-type rifles in certain types of machine guns.
