Load data for caliber "8 x 60 RS"The 8x60RS is a powerful yet versatile rifle cartridge that has grown in popularity in recent years. It was originally developed by the German government and is based on the 7.92 x 57mm Mauser cartridge. The 8x60RS offers shooters a wide range of bullet weights, from 160 to as heavy as 250 grains, providing great accuracy at long distances while still being able to remain relatively low recoil. This makes it an ideal choice for target shooting, hunting, predator calling, and even self-defense.

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.
