Load data for caliber ".333 Riml. N.E."
The .333 Rimless Nitro Express (RNE) is a cartridge developed in May of 1899 by British gun maker James Woodward & Sons. This round was most likely created to compete with other popular express rounds such as the .375 Holland and Holland Magnum but due to its length it also offered greater powder capacity allowing for higher velocities than other cartridges from the same era.

The .333 RNE is an excellent choice for long range hunting applications or large game animals given its impressive ballistics, including velocities up to 2,400 fps. Its relatively low recoil makes it suitable for use in lighter weight firearms as well, allowing it to be used on medium-sized game such as deer or bear without too much effort.

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.
