GoForBroke,

The old-school 9.3x62mm is THE rifle that I reflexively reach for IF the game is bigger/tougher than a WT deer. = 'Ole Otto Koch "KNEW what he was about" when he designed the cartridge for RED DEER & WILD BOAR. - Since then, it has become, in the eyes of many a PH, the cartridge for DANGEROUS GAME, that won't "kick your shoulder off AND that is EFFICIENT as A KILLER on every creature up to & including Cape Buffalo, Gaur, rhino, tiger, leopard, lion & elephant.

My usual load is a 286 grain JSP or solid at about 2300FPS.
(I can tell little/no difference in the "kick" of my 9.3x62mm when compared to the .30-06 with 180 grain bullet in identical rifles.- I have a Remington Model 760 in both calibers.)

My 760 in 9.3x62mm is the rifle that will go to southern Africa next year to take a Cape Buff & (hopefully) a leopard.

yours, tex

Quak,

There is nothing "obscure" about the .25-06 and/or the 9.3x62mm. = BOTH are better killers than the cartridges that you mention out to beyond 250M and even the .30-06 is at least as suitable as a KILLER on game up to the BIGGEST/toughest game, when compared to the calibers that you mentioned.
(During WWII, a Kenya Game Ranger, shooting game "on control"/culling the herds for feeding German/Italian POWs, killed NUMEROUS Cape Buff & elephant with a US Rifle, Model of 1917 in .30-06 chambering out to over 100M.)

PH Robert Huey Moses used the 9.3x62 Mauser with great success on EVERY species of game in Africa for over 4 decades. - It was his FAVORITE caliber in a Model 98 Mauser, which was remodeled into a "sporter".

yours, tex

BigStick,

Actually nothing is funnier or more disgusting than a "know it all", who sincerely believes the NONSENSE that he spews does anything but make KNOWLEDGEABLE people laugh AT his ignorance/brainlessness. = This means DIM-wits who believe that where a person lives has anything whatever to do with his/her experience/knowledge.
(There are smart Texans & stupid ones, just as there are DUMB, arrogant & SELF-important AK folks.)

Speaking of "experience", the more IGNORANT & BIGOTED the speaker, the more likely that the person uses filthy/obscene//vulgar language, to cover-up for their lack of vocabulary/education. = This means YOU, "DUMB-bunny".

Fyi, over my nearly 3 decades (& much of it being stationed OCONUS) with the USA, I'd bet that I've hunted/taken more sorts of game than you have or ever will.

yours, tex

I've read ALL of this thread so far. These quotes are on P 4.
I've squelched out all the 'static' and bs from bs (per normal).

1. I'd agree with your wishes to do a rifle to remember someone -- whatever that'd be.

2. If you want a 8X57 by all means get one, sincerely. I have a 300 WM, because I want one.

3. For myself there is NO dilema; the 30-06 (30 cal) has SO MANY options that the 8 mauser can't compete.

You only have to please yourself. Good Luck

'wall,

Of COURSE you read my every word. Congratulations?!?

1) Emotions ain't mechanics. Hint

2) Stupid is never smart. Hint

3) "Dilemma" has (2) M's...and you certainly are in no position to "compete". Hint

You'd do well to take notes and apply same.

jwall,

As loaded in Europe, the old-school 8x57mm is as powerful as the .30-06 & is quite popular with "commercial market hunters" for moose, caribou & reindeer.
(Btw, the "wildcat" & once popular after WWII, "8mm-06" could be safely loaded to out-class either "parent" cartridge.)

I'm really curious as to what the smith might say. Lot's of cartridges from the good old days pushed aside only to be replaced with the improved cartridges, yet same ballistic results.

Fredrica,

Pardon my horning you up,yet again. Congratulations?!?

Perhaps steal another of my pictures,for "your" album...to help satiate your very WELL founded Insecurities.

As an aside,"your" is a VERY big word for you.

LAUGHING!

Sugartits I just made an offer. You’re far to much of a fat fûck to back any of your bullshît up. It’s telling.
Oh and I’m not in the slightest “horned” up just think it would be fun to kick your fat azz. Here’s to you trying to save face and skate backwards at the same time.
