Load data for caliber "8 x 60 S"The 8x60S is a versatile and accurate rifle cartridge that has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. It was originally developed by the German government and is based on the 7.92 x 57mm Mauser cartridge. The 8x60S offers shooters a wide range of bullet weights, from 160 to as heavy as 250 grains, making it an excellent choice for target shooting, hunting, predator calling, and even self-defense.
The 8x60S also offers some advantages over its competitors such as improved accuracy due to its small case size, good velocity at longer distances, excellent energy retention past 1,000 yards and reduced recoil when compared to other rounds. This makes it an ideal choice for long-range shooting or taking down large game animals at longer distances without sacrificing accuracy.

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.
