Created by the gunsmith Jean Fournier, the 7x54mm is basically the 7.5x54mm French necked down to 7mm. The cartridge was designed to be used with the Mas Fournier hunting rifle, which was itself a modification of the MAS-36 rifle.
Since the retirement and death of Jean Fournier, the fabrication of this cartridge has stopped. However, if some original ammos are still available for sale (mainly as collector), reloading dies and tables have been released since then.
