The 11mm Mauser (also known as the 11x60mmR Mauser or .43 Mauser) was a black-powder cartridge developed for the Mauser Model 1871 rifle, and used later in the 71/84 variant. It is no longer in production, however it is available from custom loaders and handloading can be done to replenish spent ammunition.
