Lists on the subject

7 × 65 mm R also known as 7 × 65 mm R Brenneke is a rifle cartridge that was originally developed for hunting use . With a bullet diameter of 7.25 mm, it has a case length of 65 mm.

Development and technology

The 7 × 65 mm R was newly developed by the well-known Leipzig arms and ammunition manufacturer Wilhelm Brenneke together with the 7 × 64 mm and presented for the first time in 1917. It represents the edge version of the 7 × 64 mm for use in drop barrel weapons such as rifle shotguns and triplets. The difference in length is in the case neck, which means that the powder space is almost as large as the 7 × 64 mm. With the 7 × 65 mm R - assuming a suitable bullet - any game occurring in Europe can be hunted. It is widespread in Germany. [3]
