The 7×64mm (also unofficially known as the 7×64mm Brenneke, though its designer’s name officially never was added as a part of this cartridge name) is a rimless bottlenecked centerfire cartridgedeveloped for hunting.
As is customary in European cartridges the 7 denotes the 7 mm bullet caliber and the 64 denotes the 64 mm (2.5 in) case length.
The 7×64mm is a popular hunting cartridge in Central Europe and can, due to its 11.95 mm (0.470 in) case head diameter and 84 mm (3.3 in) overall length, easily be chambered in Mauser 98 bolt action rifles that were then standard issue in the German military.


At the start of the 20th century the famous German gun and ammunition designer Wilhelm Brenneke (1865–1951) was experimenting with the engineering concept of lengthening and other dimensional changes regarding standard cartridge cases like the M/88 cartridge case.
Then used by the German military in their Mauser Gewehr 98 rifles, to obtain extra muzzle velocity.
In 1912 Brenneke designed the commercially at the time rather unsuccessful 8×64mm S cartridge (again in production since 2001).
It was intended as a ballistic upgrade option for the Mauser Gewehr 98 rifles that were then standard issue in the German military.
The German military chose however to stick to their 8×57mm IS rifle cartridge. Avoiding rechambering their service rifles for a cartridge that due to its more favourable bore area to case volume ratio ballistically. That would outperform the .30-06 Springfield cartridge of the United States Army.
Brenneke’s engineering concept to enlarge exterior cartridge case dimensions like overall length and slightly larger case head diameter compared to the German 8×57mm IS military cartridge case.
Coupled to an increase in maximum pressure to create new for those days very powerful cartridges was essentially sound and he persisted in the development of new cartridges along this line.
In 1917 Brenneke necked down his 8×64mm S design of 1912 to 7mm calibre and introduced it as 7×64mm and achieved a major commercial success.
The 7×64mm offered, compared to the 7×57mm Mauser, about 10 to 12% extra muzzle velocity. This results in a flatter trajectory and better performance at longer range.
In the years between World War I and World War II the 7×64mm was often regarded by German hunters as a “miracle cartridge” and dozens of different factory loads were available on the German market.
It was that highly regarded the Nazi German Wehrmacht (Army) during the 1930s even considered replacing the 8×57mm IS in favour for the 7×64mm for their snipers.
The Wehrmacht decided — just like the German army in 1912 — to stick to the 8×57mm IS cartridge for their Mauser Karabiner 98k to keep things as simple as possible in their logistical chain.
Beside the 7×64mm rifle cartridge Brenneke also designed a rimmed version for break action rifles such as double rifles and combination rifles as well as for single shot rifles in 1917. The rimmed 7×65mmR variant of the cartridge was also immediately a commercial success.
In countries where military service cartridges are banned for civil ownership (like previously France), the 7×64 Brennecke is a successful cartridge for hunting and marksmanship.

Cartridge dimensions[edit]

The 7×64mm has 4.48 ml (69 grains H2O) cartridge case capacity.
A sign of the era in which the 7×64mm was developed are the gently sloped shoulders. The exterior shape of the case was designed to promote reliable case feeding and extraction in bolt-action rifles, under extreme conditions.
7 x 64.jpg
7x64mm maximum C.I.P. cartridge dimensions. All sizes in millimeters (mm).
Americans would define the shoulder angle at alpha/2 ≈ 20.42 degrees.
The common rifling twist rate for this cartridge is 220 mm (1 in 8.66 in), 4 grooves, Ø lands = 6.98 mm, Ø grooves = 7.24 mm, land width = 3.70 mm and the primer type is large rifle or large rifle magnum depending on the load.
According to the official C.I.P. (Commission Internationale Permanente pour l’Épreuve des Armes à Feu Portatives) rulings the 7×64mm Mauser can handle up to 415.00 MPa (60,191 psi) Pmax piezo pressure.
In C.I.P. regulated countries every rifle cartridge combo has to be proofed at 125% of this maximum C.I.P. pressure to certify for sale to consumers.
This means that 7×64mm Mauser chambered arms in C.I.P. regulated countries are currently (2014) proof tested at 519.00 MPa (75,275 psi) PE piezo pressure.[3]
The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure (MAP) for this cartridge is 55,000 psi (379.21 MPa) piezo pressure.[4]
The American .280 Remington cartridge is probably the closest ballistic twin of the 7×64mm.
When compared to the 7×64mm, the .280 Remington has a slightly lower maximum allowed chamber pressure and as an American 7mm cartridge has a slightly smaller groove diameter.
European 7mm cartridges all have 7.24 mm (0.285 in) grooves Ø diameter.[5] American 7mm cartridges have 7.21 mm (0.284 in) grooves Ø.

Contemporary use[edit]

As noted, the 7×64mm is one of the favorite rifle cartridges in Central Europe and is offered as a chambering option in every major European hunting rifle manufacturer’s products palette.
The versatility of the 7×64mm for hunting all kinds of European game and the availability of numerous factory loads all attribute to the 7×64mm chambering popularity.[6]
Loaded with short light bullets it can be used on small European game like fox and geese or medium game such as roe deer and chamois. Loaded with long heavy bullets it can be used on big European game like boarred deermoose and brown bear.
The 7×64mm offers very good penetrating ability due to a fast twist rate that enables it to fire long, heavy bullets with a high sectional density.
The 7×64mm rimmed sister cartridge, the 7×65mmR, is also very popular in Central Europe for the same reasons as the 7×64mm.
The former legal banning of (ex) military service cartridges like the .308 Winchester7×57mm Mauser8×57mm I, 8×57mm IS and the .30-06 Springfield in countries like France and Belgium also promoted acceptance and use of the 7×64mm and the 7×65mmR.

The .45-60 Winchester is a centerfire rifle cartridge intended for 19th-century big-game hunting.[4] Nomenclature of the era indicated the .45-60 cartridge contained a 0.45-inch (11 mm) diameter bullet with 60 grains (3.9 g) of black powder.
Winchester Repeating Arms Company shortened the .45-70 government cartridge to operate through the Winchester Model 1876 rifle’s lever-action.[2]
The Colt Lightning Carbine and the Whitney Arms Company’s Kennedy lever-action rifle were also chambered for the .45-60.[1]
These early rifles’ advantage of faster loading for subsequent shots was soon eclipsed by the stronger and smoother Winchester Model 1886 action capable of handling longer cartridges including the popular full length .45-70.[4]
The .45-60 and similarly short cartridges designed for the Model 1876 rifle faded into obsolescence as 20th-century hunters preferred more powerful smokeless powder loadings of cartridges designed for stronger rifles. Winchester production of .45-60 cartridges ended during the great depression.
