Load data for caliber ".40-60 Win."The .40-60 Winchester cartridge is an obsolete centerfire rifle cartridge that was developed by Winchester Repeating Arms Company in the 1870s. It was designed for use in single-shot, lever-action, and slide-action rifles.
The .40-60 Winchester cartridge features a rimmed brass case with a bullet diameter of .406 inches (10.31 mm) and a case length of 2.5 inches (63.5 mm). It typically uses a 210-grain (14 g) lead bullet propelled by a black powder charge.
The .40-60 Winchester cartridge was popular among hunters and shooters in the late 19th century, and it was used to take a variety of game, including deer, elk, and bear. However, the cartridge was eventually replaced by newer, more powerful cartridges, such as the .30-30 Winchester and the .45-70 Government, and it fell out of favor.
Today, the .40-60 Winchester cartridge is considered to be an obsolete and rare cartridge, and it is primarily used by collectors and antique firearms enthusiasts.

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.
