Load data for caliber ".30 Fl. N.E. Purdey"The 30 Fl. N.E. Purdey is a popular centerfire rifle cartridge developed by the English firm of James Purdey and Sons in 1904. It was designed for use in their line of sporting rifles, and has since become one of the most widely-used cartridges among British hunters and shooters.
The 30 Fl. N.E. Purdey is fairly unique compared to other cartridges of its caliber as it uses a flat-based bullet rather than a boat-tail style, allowing for greater velocity and improved accuracy at long range. Its trajectory is also flatter than many traditional European cartridges, making it ideal for taking longer shots on smaller game animals such as deer or foxes without having to worry about drop off or over penetration beyond the target area.
Ammunition for the 30 Fl N.E Purdey can be limited but there are several suppliers that offer various options in different weights ranging from 150 to 180 grains. These are usually loaded with soft point or hollow point bullets which make them particularly suitable for hunting applications where maximum expansion upon impact is desired to ensure clean kills with minimal suffering inflicted on the animal being shot at.

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.
