Here's a thought.

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

It seems that a few of us are 9.3 caliber fans. How about a 350RM necked to 9.3? This way you get 9.3X62/9.3X74R performance out of a short action cartridge.

Hmm...What a way to complicate on what on want for my next gun......

Well, you ccould do it.
I estimate the total water capacity of the 9.3 X 62mm Mauser as 71.3 grains of water. The 350 Remington Magnum necked up to 9.3.. Has an estimated total water capacity of 68.7 grains of water.
If you seat the 9.3mm bullet .360” deep you have an estimated water capacity of 59.4 grains of water.
This would leave enough room for 52.4 grains of Alliant Reloder 15 - uncompressed. Performance would be good but I would prefer the 350RM for the wider bullet selection.

360RM? It would work, although I'm not sure what would be gained. It shoots bullets that are what, 8 thousandths bigger? Still, it would make for a very unique chambering and I always like things that are different.

Yup, it has and if you google the above in a couple configurations, I'm sure you can find some excellent reading on both the original idea of the round, an Alaska hunt John Barsness went on using the 9.3BS to kill a black and grizzly bear there and another article written to discuss performance of the new round.

for a head start, here's one article:
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote
a blank check made payable to The United States of
for an amount of up to and including my life.
That is honor, and there are way too many people in this
country who no longer understand it.

Handloader has the article, maybe a couple years or so back. I'd guess it would be a great short action case, and brass is accessable.

You should whip one up, and tell us about it

I could do that.....Or a WSM necked to the 9.3....Or the RCM.....


Mmm....I'm thinking a 30-06 class round...So probably either the 9.3X62 or the 9.3 Barsness Sisk
