|The 5.2x68mm Mondragón was an early attempt at high velocities by Manuel Mondragon, a Mexican Army officer
in the early 1890s who invented the self-loading rifle. However, according to (Petersen’s Guns of the World, 1972,
issue 330, page 21) it was Colonel Rubin, Director of the Swiss factory at Thun Switzerland who designed the
cartridge and who held the patents on the cartridge. My thanks to Chris Punnett for the information on the above.
