Load data for caliber "5.6 x 52 R"The 5.6x52R cartridge is a rimmed centerfire rifle cartridge that was developed in Italy in the late 19th century. It was designed for use in rifles and combination guns for hunting medium-sized game.
The cartridge uses a .22 caliber bullet and has a case length of 52mm (2.047 inches). The bullet typically weighs between 45 and 55 grains and can be loaded to produce muzzle velocities of around 2,300 to 2,800 feet per second. The cartridge is often loaded with soft-point bullets for hunting purposes.
The 5.6x52R cartridge is not as widely used as some other cartridges in its class, such as the .22-250 Remington or .223 Remington, but is still popular among some hunters and shooters in Europe. It is primarily used for hunting medium-sized game, such as deer and wild boar, at ranges of up to 200 yards.
It is important to note that the 5.6x52R cartridge is not interchangeable with other cartridges that may have similar names or dimensions, such as the 5.6x50R Magnum or the 5.6x57R. It is important to use the correct ammunition for your firearm to ensure safe and accurate shooting.

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.
