Load data for caliber "8 x 65 RS"The 8 x 65 RS is a variant of the 8 x 65 R cartridge that was developed to provide improved accuracy and longer range performance. The 8 x 65 RS offers shooters similar advantages as the standard 8 x 65 R, such as versatility, improved accuracy, reduced recoil, and exceptional power.
The main difference between the two cartridges lies in their case size; the 8 x 65 RS has a slightly larger case diameter than its predecessor which leads to higher velocities at longer distances. This makes it an excellent choice for precision shooting applications such as long-range target shooting and hunting. The increased velocity also provides increased energy retention up to 1,000 yards, further reducing recoil and providing greater accuracy at longer ranges.

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.
