Load data for caliber ".22 Savage"
The .22 Savage is a centerfire rifle cartridge developed by the Savage Arms Company in 1911. It was designed for use in the Savage Model 99 lever-action rifle, and was one of the first cartridges to use smokeless powder. The .22 Savage is also known as the .22 Savage High-Power or .22 HP, and it has a bullet diameter of .228 inches.

The .22 Savage was a popular cartridge for hunting medium-sized game in North America during the early 20th century. It has a reputation for being accurate and flat-shooting, with a relatively low recoil. However, it has been largely supplanted by more powerful cartridges, such as the .223 Remington and .243 Winchester, for hunting and target shooting.

It's worth noting that the ".22 Savage" should not be confused with the ".22 Savage Rimfire" cartridge, which is a completely different cartridge that was also developed by Savage Arms in the late 19th century. The .22 Savage Rimfire is a rimfire cartridge that was used in the Model 1899 Savage lever-action rifle. It is now obsolete and has not been produced for many years.

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.
