Load data for caliber ".240 Flang. Nitro Express"
The .240 Flanged Nitro Express (FNX) is a powerful rifle cartridge designed for use in double-barreled rifles. It was developed in the late 1800s as an improvement over existing cartridges such as the .375 Flanged Nitro Express and the .500/.450 Nitro Express.

The .240 FNX offers excellent performance at long range with low recoil and high accuracy. It is used for both hunting dangerous game, such as African buffalo and elephant, and long-range target shooting, making it a versatile choice for many types of hunters and shooters.

The cartridge is available in popular bolt-action rifles from top manufacturers including Browning, Howa, Kimber, Remington, Ruger, Savage Arms and Tikka T3x CTR. It is also available in semi-automatic rifles such as the Ruger American Predator and Savage MSR 15 Competition.

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.
