Load data for caliber "8 x 65 R"The 8 x 65 R cartridge was developed by Mannlicher in the early 20th century and has since become a popular choice among hunters, target shooters, and enthusiasts. Its versatility makes it an excellent all-rounder, offering good performance for long-range target shooting, hunting, predator calling, and even self-defense.
The 8 x 65 R has seen widespread use in Europe in recent years, with many European countries adopting it as their standard service rifle cartridge. In the US, it is used mainly for hunting but has gained popularity among precision shooters as well. The small case size of the 8 x 65 R provides improved accuracy over other cartridges due to its minimized bullet drop and velocity at longer distances. Furthermore, its energy retention up to 1,000 yards helps reduce recoil when compared with other cartridges.

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.
