Load data for caliber "5.6 x 50 Mag."
The 5.6x50 Magnum, also known as the 5.6x50R Magnum, is a centerfire rifle cartridge that was developed by the German firearms manufacturer RWS in the early 20th century. It is a rimmed cartridge that is designed for use in small game and varmint hunting.

The 5.6x50 Magnum uses a .22 caliber bullet and has a case length of 50mm (1.969 inches). The cartridge is loaded to produce muzzle velocities of around 2,800 feet per second and can deliver muzzle energies of around 1,300 foot-pounds. It is known for its flat trajectory and relatively low recoil.

The 5.6x50 Magnum is still produced today and is primarily used in Europe for hunting small game and varmints, as well as for target shooting and competition. It is not as widely used as some other small game cartridges, such as the .22 Long Rifle or .17 HMR, but is still popular among some hunters and shooters.

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.
