Load data for caliber "7 x 57"
The 7x57 is a rimless, bottle-necked cartridge developed by Paul Mauser in 1892. It is sometimes referred to as the "7mm Spanish" due to its widespread use in Spain and Latin America.

The 7x57 offers excellent accuracy and good penetration at medium range distances. It has moderate recoil and low pressure levels when compared to other cartridges of similar caliber, making it a popular choice for many hunting applications.

It has a muzzle velocity of 2600 fps with a velocity of 2400 fps at 100 yards and 2200 fps at 200 yards. The 7x57 is suitable for deer, wild boar and other small to medium game animals.

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.
