Load data for caliber "6.5 x 65"
The 6.5 x 65 is a powerful yet accurate centerfire cartridge that was developed by Wilhelm Brenneke in 1927 and is ideally suited to hunting large game such as deer and elk at medium-long range. It has a 2.540 inch case length and can produce velocities of up to 3,100 feet per second with bullets weighing between 120 and 160 grains, making it an excellent choice for long range shooting or hunting at extended distances.

The 6.5 x 65 is also known for its accuracy and consistency when used with quality ammunition, making it an ideal choice for target shooting or competition shooting events such as F-Class or PRS matches. The round has also been used in military applications, most notably by the German army during World War II where it was used in the Gewehr 43 semi-automatic rifle.

When it comes to reloading the 6.5 x 65, you'll be pleased to know that there are many different types of brass cases available on the market today in various sizes depending on your wants and needs; however due to its versatility most reloaders tend to opt for Berdan primed cases which are easy to find thanks to their abundance on both store shelves and military surplus shops alike! Additionally if you're looking for a reliable round that provides impressive performance without too much kick back then look no further than the 6.5x64 Brenneke!

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.
