I began guiding in Alaska 43 years ago with a 375 H&H and decided to give the 9.3x62 a try almost 30 years ago.
I have killed a lot of big bears with both and "know" the 375 has to be a better killer. But I have seen no examples to prove it.

If a fellow was to build a 9.3x62, what barrel length would you recommend?

I have not had the displeasure of the bear follow up. But, I certainly appreciate the 20” barrels for my normal moose hunting with 375 Ruger & 416 Ruger.
The 270 grain TSX is what I use in the 375’s. It has performed outstandingly from under 25 to 180 yds. As has the 350 grain TSX in the 416’s from under 25 to about 80 yards.

I am debating on reboring a heavy barrel 19.5 “ 30-06 to 9.3x62. But, not sure if I want to deal with more dies, brass, and bullets.

My primary 9.3 is 20.5", which I find ideal. 2400 with 286s, 2500 with 250s.

I’ve thrown the idea around of having a rifle bored to 9.3 by JES. I’ve been stuck on 21.5” in my head. With Sitka saying 20” is almost too long in the nasty stuff it has be rethinking things. First, I’d have to find a candidate I liked to rebore though. My .338 WM does what I need it to, but I also like to be different.

I find balance more important than length, but most of my rifles have between 20-22" barrels.

What are you using as your primary bullet choice in the 9.3 for the grizz?

That does make a lot of sense, if I don’t like the way an rifle “feels” if you will, I’m probably not going to carry it hunting

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
From the 9.3x62's Centenary in 2005, the 9.3x62 Journal enjoyed unexpected interest. Since the target audience back then were South African hunters, it was first published in A4 magazine format, with a fair amount of contributions written in the Afrikaans language. Self published of course... who knew the 9.3x62 Mauser back then afterall?
But readers wanted a book and the 2nd Edition in A5 was printed from 2007 - 2013.
The fully revised 3rd Edition english version was underway, but due to many challenges, it took no less 9 years to complete. The result is a 9.3x62 Journal filled with contributions from Spain, Italy, USA, Australia and South Africa with more than 600 full color pages...
Real life bullet tests, real life experiences, opinions, reports, images and what not, makes the 9.3x62 Journal unequalled in its genre.
I have the honor to have received the proof copy this week... it looks great!




I have two 9.3x62's and a 9.3x57 in the stable.

Ruger Hawkeye S/S in 22", rebored from a 30-06. This one has a 1/10 twist for the heavier bullets.
I am hoping to take it to AK this fall for a moose hunt.

Ruger Hawkeye African, Lipsye's

Husqvarna m640 in x57.

I'm a fan.

Man i dont know, no Alaskan or Guide here, but would dearly love to take on all that Alaska has to offer with my 98 Mauser 9.3x62 with the big 320gr Woodleigh round nose Weldcores.

Have you run penetration tests with those bullets comparing them to a 286?

No Sir, but have more of the 320gr Woodleigh protected points loaded up than the round nose, i think both would plow plenty deep, they all leave at 2400 fps over RL-17.

N 540 works great too for the 320'a and 300's

The 320s penetrate well, a friend used them on Cape Buffalo

SU35,

After checking out the link your provided, I looked on Kindle and was able to buy the book. I've been reading it this evening. I doubt I will ever buy a 9.3x62, but am enjoying the book.

Thanks, Robert.

Are you running a 22 or 24"on that 98, gunner? That should be enough for all that walks on four legs...
