Load data for caliber ".30 BR"
The 30 BR (or 30 Bench Rest) is a wildcat centerfire rifle cartridge designed by George Tucker in 1953. It is based on the .223 Remington casing and uses a 6mm bullet, making it an excellent choice for precision long-range shooting.

The 30 BR offers a flatter trajectory and improved ballistics over cartridges like the .223 Remington or .22-250, making it well-suited for competition shooting where accuracy and consistency are key. It also has relatively low recoil which makes it easy to shoot accurately at longer ranges without having to worry about muzzle climb or shooter fatigue.

Ammunition for the 30 BR is not widely available from major manufacturers, but component bullets can be found from various suppliers in various weights and shapes. Handloading this wildcat is also easy due to its generous case capacity which allows users to tailor their loadings to specific shooting scenarios with ease.

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.
