Load data for caliber ".500 Jeffery Rimless"The .500 Jeffery Rimless is a big-game hunting cartridge developed by Jeffery in the early 1900s. It is designed to be used in bolt-action rifles and is known for its power and accuracy.
The cartridge uses a .510-inch diameter bullet and has a case length of 3.25 inches. It delivers high muzzle energy and velocity, making it suitable for hunting large and dangerous game.
The .500 Jeffery Rimless is a popular choice among African big game hunters, as it is capable of taking down large animals such as elephants, buffalo, and rhinoceroses. However, it is also suitable for hunting other large game such as moose, elk, and bear.
Due to its size and power, the .500 Jeffery Rimless produces significant recoil, which can be challenging to manage for some shooters. Therefore, it is important to use proper shooting techniques and equipment to ensure accuracy and safety.

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.
