7 X 64 DWM EXPERIMENTAL

Experimental cartridge by Brenneke during the period 1937-1940 that ultimately lead to the development of the 7x66 Vom Hofe cartridge. This specimen was based on the 9.3x64 Brenneke case necked down to 7mm. This trial appears unsuccessful and no commercial production appears to have been carried out, although it is mentioned in a c1937-38 Brenneke catalogue. Originally thought to be the 7x64.5 Brenneke Maximum but the case dimensions are not the same. This was reclassified by Brad Dixon as the 7x64 DWM Experimental with reference W136
