Load data for caliber ".22 Picra"
The .22 Picra is also known as the 5.6x25mmR, a rimmed centerfire cartridge designed in Austria in the late 19th century. It was used in a variety of pistols and revolvers in Europe, but it never gained widespread popularity and has since become obsolete.

The cartridge used a .22 caliber bullet and had a case length of 25mm (or 0.98 inches). It was originally designed for use in self-defense firearms and police revolvers, but it was later used in target pistols as well.

The .22 Picra was never widely adopted and has since been replaced by more modern cartridges such as the .22 Long Rifle and .22 Magnum. Today, it is mostly of historical interest and collectors of antique firearms may seek out firearms chambered for this cartridge.

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.
