Load data for caliber "8 mm Rem. Mag."
The 8 mm Rem. Mag. is a type of large-sized rifle cartridge developed in the late 1960s, and is still widely used today.

The 8 mm Rem. Mag. utilizes a 160 grain full metal jacketed bullet that produces velocities well over 3,000 feet per second at the muzzle with an energy level of 3,498 ft/lbs - making it a powerful and effective round for taking down even large game animals from far distances. The relatively low recoil also makes it suitable for use in bolt action or semi-automatic rifles, greatly increasing its rate of fire compared to more traditional single shot rifles chambered in similar calibers.

Since its introduction in 1965, this cartridge has become one of the most popular large bore rifle rounds

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.
