Guy is obnoxious but cool footage. I especially like him saying the recoil could hurt you but it's not that bad 😔

The 9.3x62 is "popular" in the Scandinavian countries but it was developed in 1905 but Otto Bock....in Germany!

Scandinavians kept it alive... but it was THE Big Game round in all of Africa, until supplies dried up from Germany after ww2.

For each 375H&H on that continent there where probably 20-30 9,3x62.

Socialism for big corporations and military industrial complex

It has had following in Central Europe and more recently in the United States. The popularity in Colonial Africa can be attributed to affordable German rifles chambered for that caliber. These were much less expensive than English magazine rifles like Westley Richards.

My PH in Botswana had 3 pre-WW2 Mauser sporting rifle in 7x57, 8x57, and 9.3x57 and was shooting Norma and RWS ammo, The Swed who was the camp/logistics manager had 2 large ring FN Husqvarna 640s in 9.3x62, one with a mannlicher style stock and shorter barrel that was his do everything utility gun.

I read the 9,3x62 was developed for German farmers in Africa to stop marauding animals in their fields.

9.3x62 Mauser is popular for sure, it gets the job done and has been around for 100 yrs+. We have all types of new cartridges that have been developed that cover similar territory. I’ve always wondered why the 376 Steyr never became more popular being slightly more powerful than the 9.3 and slightly less than the 375 H&H. The case is a very efficient design and produces some great ballistics. Guess it just never caught on plus Hornady has a habit of abandoning some of its creations regarding brass.

If ya have a 9.3 look at some of John Barsness(Mule Deer) loads. In his big book of gun hack it talk about working up loads for that cartridge. I’m shooting 250gr accubonds right at 2725 that absolutely knocks stuff over. Heck of a big game round.

Necessity is the mother of all invention
and it didn't exist for the 376 anywhere
near as much as in the unique Era of 9,3x62

376 is based on 9,3x64 Brenneke which also
didn't gain much traction, but logic says the
Brenneke is a better fit in Std M98 than 375
that's so often been crammed into it.

The short, fat and powerful do not seem to catch on. Examples: 6,5/.350 Remington Magnum, .376 Styer, .325WSM..... grin

This is what I have been led to believe also. It was their one rifle battery that served multiple purposes. I like the caliber and it’s not punishing to shoot. I have flattened large hogs with my ruger safari 9.3, surprisingly accurate.

I have a Mark X Mauser rebore that can do this with 285 grain Hornady Interlocks. I have only ever shot one deer with this round but it definitely put a thump on that buck. I have this one ready for if and when I get to go back to Africa. Or a bear hunt!

Yes, but you forgot to tell him to check cartridge/bullet ballistics and adjust elevation accordingly.

I know how to do that.
If I post pictures of my groups at my customary 2.5 inches high, then I get instructed on that as well. 😳
This group was just part of my load development. Pretty good load, don’t ya think?
