Load data for caliber ".310 Cadet Rifle"
The .310 Cadet Rifle is a bolt action rifle chambered in .310 Cadet, a proprietary cartridge developed by the British firearms manufacturer E.M. Reilly & Co Ltd. The rifle is designed with a shortened stock and barrel to make it more suitable for young shooters or for use in tight quarters such as inside an aircraft or other small spaces.

The rifle features a 22" barrel and weighs only 5lbs making it an ideal first-time shooter's gun while also being suitable for adults looking for an easy-to-handle firearm that won't strain the shoulders or arms. It utilizes rimmed brass cartridges of length 2.25 inches which are available from various manufacturers in both conventional lead/jacketed bullets as well as soft point types ideal for hunting applications.

The .310 Cadet Rifle is considered by many to be one of the most accurate and reliable guns available in its class, though it lacks the power of larger calibers such as .308 Winchester or 30-06 Springfield which can often require longer barrels for optimum accuracy at extended ranges.

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.
