Question Cast load for 9.3 caliber


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have just ordered NEI's 260 grain gas checked mold. I plan to shoot this bullet in a 9.3 x 57 and 9.3 x 62. I will heat treat the bullets. They will be cast from a mix of tire weight and linotype lead. I plan to use them for target shooting and hunting deer and hogs.

Can I get about 2000 fps without leading problems?

Does anyone have an idea for a good starting load?

Charles: Yes you should be able to get close to 2000 (57mm) or even higher (62 mm) provided you are using a quality lube. Possibly highrer in both but if you get only 1800 or thereabouts it would still be an effective load given the weight and diameter.

I have no cast data for either cartridge at hand but believe I would look at 358 Win data for similar weight bullets as an indicator for the 57mm case and 35 Whelen data for the 62mm again using similar bullet weight.

If you start below max published for either and carefully work up watching pressure signs and hopefully a chronograph you shoul get where you want

This discussion of the 9.3x62 may help some.
