Load data for caliber ".17 Libra"
The .17 Libra is an accurate and powerful centerfire rifle cartridge developed in 2001 by the Australian company Big Bear Ammunition. This round offers excellent velocities with minimal recoil, making it perfect for smaller framed shooters.

The .17 Libra is primarily used for hunting small game such as rabbits and hares but can also be used to shoot larger game such as deer, antelope, wild boar and hogs at close ranges due to its mild recoil and flat trajectory. It can also be used effectively for shooting varmints such as coyotes, foxes and raccoons.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
