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.

Die von Ihnen angegebene Gesamtlänge von 82,00mm kann nicht stimmen,denn von RWS wird bei dem TM Geschoß mit 140grs eine Gesamtlänge von 72,5mm amgegeben. Die längstre gefundene Angabe waren 78,00 mm. Mfg Alois Holzbauer

Our feedback: Hallo, die maximale PAtronenlänge (L6) liegt laut Zertifizierugsstelle bei 82 mm: http://www.cip-bobp.org/homologation/uploads/tdcc/tab-i/tabical-de-page24.pdf. Diese maximale Gesamtlänge nennen wir bei der 6.5 x 57. Wie Sie aber bei den Ladedaten sehen können (https://www.xxl-reloading.com/6.5-x-57-.264-140gr-RWS-Doppelkern) rechnen wir dort mit 80,8 mm. Sie können noch kurzer setzen, aber unsere Daten stimmen und sind in der Norm!
