Load data for caliber "11 mm M73 French Revolver"
The 11mm M73 French Revolver is a rimmed, double-action revolver designed in 1873 by French arms manufacturer Leclerc for military use. It has an overall length of 11 mm and a bullet weight of 16.3 grams, making it one of the most powerful handgun rounds available today. The M73 was eventually replaced by the 9mm Mle 1892 cartridge due to its greater reliability and accuracy.

Today, the 11mm M73 is still widely used in Europe for hunting and self-defense purposes. Its impressive power allows it to take down large game animals such as deer with ease, while its relatively low recoil makes it manageable even in smaller frames.

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.
