Load data for caliber "5 mm / 35 SMc"
The 5mm/35 SMc cartridge is a relatively new rifle cartridge designed by American gunsmith Michael McPherson in the early 2000s. The cartridge has a bullet diameter of 5mm and a case length of 35mm, which gives it a relatively small size but high velocity.

The 5mm/35 SMc cartridge is designed for long-range shooting and is known for its flat trajectory and accuracy. It has a high ballistic coefficient, which helps it retain velocity and energy over longer distances.

The cartridge is primarily used in custom-built rifles and has gained popularity among long-range target shooters and hunters. However, due to its relatively new design and limited availability, it is not as widely used as some other rifle cartridges.

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.
