The 7.65 Argentine cartridge is called by several other names as well:
- 7.65 Mauser;
- 7.65x53 Mauser;
- 7.65 Belgian Mauser.
Originally designed for use in the Belgian 1889 Mauser rifle,
many other countries adopted this cartridge in their military
- Paraguay; and
Per Krause Publication's
Cartridges of the World they state that the 7.65
Argentine Mauser is probably one of the better Mauser cartridges
ever made when it comes to accuracy. The 7.65 Argentine cartridge is very similar in
overall specifications and performance to the 7.62 NATO cartridge as the
image and comparison table show below.
Cases can be formed
from .30-06, .270 Winchester, 7mm Mauser, and 8mm Mauser brass
cases and should be trimmed to be no longer than an overall
length of 2.11 inches.
