Load data for caliber ".348 Win."
The .348 Winchester is a rifle cartridge developed by Winchester in 1936. It was designed as a high-powered, big-game hunting cartridge that could take down large game animals like elk and moose.

The cartridge is based on a modified .50-110 Winchester case, which was necked down to accept .348 caliber bullets. The resulting cartridge has a bullet diameter of .348 inches and a case length of 2.015 inches.

The .348 Winchester is capable of firing bullets weighing between 200 and 250 grains at muzzle velocities ranging from 2,350 to 2,625 feet per second. It is a powerful cartridge that is suitable for hunting a wide range of game animals, including elk, moose, and brown bear.

The .348 Winchester was popular among hunters and shooters during the mid-20th century, and a number of firearms manufacturers produced rifles that were chambered for the cartridge. However, it has since declined in popularity and is no longer produced by Winchester or other major ammunition manufacturers.

Today, the .348 Winchester is primarily used by collectors and enthusiasts of vintage firearms. It is also occasionally used for hunting and target shooting, but ammunition can be difficult to find and expensive compared to more common cartridges.

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.
