Load data for caliber "6.5 x 64 (Reb)"The 6.5x64 Reb is a classic and powerful cartridge that has been in use since the early 1900s with its popularity persisting to this day due to its impressive velocity, relatively mild recoil, and low chamber pressures for more consistent performance at longer ranges!
To start off, let's take a look at the history of the 6.5x64 Reb. It was originally developed by Wilhelm Brenneke in 1910 for his line of sporting cartridges used mainly for hunting game at medium-long ranges; however during World War I its use was extended to military rifles as well due to its superior ballistics compared to other rounds of similar size! After the war production picked up again with both standard brass cases as well as military surplus Berdan primed cases becoming available making it one of the most popular cartridges among hunters and target shooters alike!

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.
