History of the 8x50Rmm Lebel Rifle Cartridge:

The 8x50Rmm lebel rifle cartridges  was introduced in 1886 for the Lebel bolt action rifle and  was the first small bore cartridge using smokeless powder by a world power.

It was used by the French until the advent of the 7.5x54mm MAS cartridge and bolt-action rifle in 1932. Cartridge production ended in France in the late 1940s. and Remington also produced rifles and ammunition for the French government.

Around 2017 the *C.I.P. changed the cartridge designation to 8x51R. 

*C.I.P. is short for (The Commission internationale permanente pour l’Ă©preuve des armes Ă  feu portatives) or in English (Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms).
