The 6.5 x 53 R K&S is a rimmed cartridge designed by husband and wife gunsmiths, Karl and Sonja Schonauer. It was originally created as a sporting round for the Mannlicher-Schoenauer bolt-action rifle. The cartridge is characterized by its relatively large case diameter and long neck length, with an overall length of 3.20 inches. The bullet has a classic pointed profile, while the propellant load is suitable for hunting game animals of medium size. This round offers a good balance between accuracy and power, making it a great choice for hunters who want to take down quarry at farther ranges than smaller calibers can accommodate.

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.
