Load data for caliber "7 x 61 S&H (Super)"The 7x61 S&H (Super) is a powerful and accurate cartridge designed by the legendary designer Charles Newton in 1912. It was created for use with larger game such as elk and moose due to its strong penetration, high velocity and low recoil.
The 7x61 S&H Super has a muzzle velocity of 2800 fps, with a velocity of 2600 fps at 100 yards and 2400 fps at 200 yards. The winding drift is 0.70 inches at V0, making it highly accurate even at long ranges.
It is more powerful than other cartridges of similar caliber, yet its recoil remains relatively light compared to the .30-06 or .300 Winchester Magnum cartridges. Therefore it has become very popular among experienced hunters who need accuracy and power without excessive recoil or felt muzzle blast.

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.
