Load data for caliber "6.5 x 39"
The 6.5 x 39mm is a rifle cartridge developed by Japanese firearms manufacturer Howa in the early 2000s for use in sporting rifles. This round was designed to offer comparable performance to other rounds such as the .308 Winchester with less recoil and less cost.

The 6.5 x 39mm is an excellent choice for those looking for an affordable, low-recoil round suitable both hunting and target shooting applications due to its efficient design and impressive ballistics including velocities up to 2,900 fps at moderate pressures. It has seen limited popularity compared to its contemporaries such as the 6.5 Creedmoor due to its relatively recent introduction, but can still be found if you look hard enough.

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.
