Load data for caliber "7.62 UKM"The 7.62 UKM is a high-powered rifle cartridge developed in Great Britain in the early 1950s. It was designed to be used in machine guns, light machine guns and rifles. The design was based off of the .303 British round, but with improved performance due to its larger volume and higher velocity.
The 7.62 UKM utilizes a heavy 175 grain copper-jacketed FMJ bullet which produces 2,800 feet per second at the muzzle with an energy level of 3,040 ft/lbs. This makes it one of the most powerful rounds available for use in British-made firearms.
The 7.62 UKM has seen action all across the world during several wars, including being used by both sides during the Vietnam War and more recently by Saudi Arabian forces in Yemen

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.
