Load data for caliber ".369 N.E. Purdey"
The .369 Nitro Express is a big game hunting cartridge developed by James Purdey & Sons, a British gunmaker. It was introduced in the early 1900s and is based on the .400/350 Nitro Express cartridge, which was developed by John Rigby & Company.

The .369 Nitro Express cartridge uses a rimmed, bottlenecked case that is typically loaded with a 270-grain bullet. It is designed for use in double rifles and bolt-action rifles, and is considered a versatile and powerful cartridge suitable for hunting large and dangerous game such as Cape buffalo and elephant.

Today, the .369 Nitro Express is a rare and specialized cartridge that is primarily used by big game hunters and collectors of antique firearms. James Purdey & Sons still produce custom rifles chambered for this cartridge, and it can be found from a few other gunmakers as well. It is important to note that the use of such firearms and cartridges may be subject to legal restrictions in some countries.

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.
