9.5 X 66 VOM HOFE SUPER EXPRESS

According to an article by Norbert Klups in DWJ 11/95 this was a joint development by Wolfgang Romey for Gehman and Westley Richards. It is based on the 7x66 SE necked up to .375 (9,5mm). The idea was to create a standard length action cartridge with ballistics exceeding that of the 375 H&H. The project did however not seem too successful.

    

No longer produced, below is the British version the 9.5x66 Vom Hofe. The 375 designation was requested specifically by the British as that is the minimum legal caliber for hunting dangerous game in Africa so the headstamp should reflect that.
