Load data for caliber ".219 Zipper"
The .219 Zipper is a rifle cartridge developed by Winchester in 1937. It is a centerfire, bottlenecked cartridge with a bullet diameter of .224 inches (5.7mm) and a case length of 1.75 inches (44mm).

The .219 Zipper was designed as a varmint cartridge for use in lever-action rifles. It is capable of firing light bullets at high velocities, making it well-suited for hunting small game such as groundhogs, prairie dogs, and coyotes at ranges of up to 300 yards.

The cartridge was popular among hunters and shooters during the mid-20th century but has since fallen out of favor due to the development of more powerful and versatile cartridges. However, it still has a dedicated following among collectors and enthusiasts who appreciate its historical significance and unique performance characteristics.

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.
