Load data for caliber ".22 PPC USA"
The .22 PPC USA is a small-caliber rifle cartridge developed in the United States by Ferris Pindell in the early 1980s. The cartridge was designed specifically for benchrest shooting, where accuracy is of utmost importance.

The .22 PPC USA is based on the .220 Russian cartridge case, which is necked down to .22 caliber. It uses a small primer and a relatively large amount of powder, which allows it to achieve high velocities while maintaining low levels of recoil.

The cartridge has become popular among benchrest shooters due to its accuracy and consistency, and it is capable of producing sub-MOA groups at 100 yards. It is also sometimes used for varmint hunting, although it is not as popular for this purpose as some other cartridges such as the .22-250 or .223 Remington.

Because the .22 PPC USA was developed specifically for benchrest shooting, it may not be as widely available as other cartridges, and rifles chambered for it may be less common. However, for those who are interested in precision shooting or competing in benchrest matches, the .22 PPC USA remains a popular and effective choice.

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.
