Load data for caliber ".30-06 R Stief"
The 30-06 R Stief is a rimmed centerfire rifle cartridge developed in Germany by firearms manufacturer Rheinische Metallwaren und Maschinenfabrik (RMM) in 1968 for their Erma SR-1 semi-automatic sporting rifle.

The 30-06 R Stief was designed to replicate the performance of the popular 30-06 Springfield cartridge without infringing on existing patents held by Winchester and Remington. It is capable of achieving velocities of up to 3,000 feet per second with some loads and excellent accuracy potential for both target shooting and hunting applications.

Ammunition for the 30-06 R Stief can sometimes be hard to come by but there are several suppliers that offer various bullet weights ranging from 150 to 180 grains with soft point or hollow point bullets which make them particularly suitable for hunting applications where maximum expansion upon impact is desired. The flat trajectory of this cartridge makes it ideal for taking clean shots at medium-sized game animals such as deer or wild boar without having to worry about drop off or over penetration beyond the target area.

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.
