Load data for caliber "6.5 mm Rem. Mag."The 6.5 Remington Magnum (6.5mm RM) is a rifle cartridge developed by Remington Arms in the early 1970s for use in big game hunting. This round was designed to offer superior performance compared to other rounds from that era, with velocities up to 3,000 fps and excellent penetration capabilities.
The 6.5mm RM is an excellent choice for those looking for a powerful long-range round offering great ballistics in a relatively mild recoil package, making it suitable for both hunting and target shooting applications alike. It has seen increasing popularity due its accuracy and flat trajectory which makes it suitable for precision shooting at extended ranges, making it useful not only for big game but also varmints and other pests as well.

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.
