Load data for caliber "10.75 x 68"The 10.75x68mm (or 10.75mm Schuler) is a large, centerfire rifle cartridge designed for hunting big game such as moose, elk, and bear. It was developed in Germany by Wilhelm Brenneke and introduced in 1920 as a high-powered alternative to existing hunting cartridges of the time.
The 10.75x68mm uses a bottlenecked case with a bullet diameter of 10.9mm and an overall case length of 68mm. It typically fires a heavy, 18-gram (275-grain) bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 750 meters per second (2,460 feet per second), delivering high energy and stopping power at medium to long ranges.
Despite its powerful performance, the 10.75x68mm cartridge is relatively uncommon today, and is typically only used by dedicated hunters and collectors of antique firearms. Nonetheless, it remains a capable and effective cartridge for hunting large game, particularly in areas where longer range shots may be necessary.

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.
