Went home and did some searching on the web for the ammo by plugging in the upc, item number, name on box and multiple different ways to find something just like it ... Zilch .... all the searches came up with the 285 gr PSP Core-Lokt ammo and zero mention of "Bronze Point"

Both boxes contain the 285 gr PSP-CL ammo, no such "Bronze Point" bullet in the boxes even though it's what the box indicates ... boxes made that way by Remington ....... Bronze Point across the box and the front flap also shows 285 gr PSP R93X621 , searching that # leads to the 285 gr Core-Lokt ammo, one big circle with zero info on the BP part ...

Maybe someone switched up the ammo and nobody ever noticed, I've no clue ... the weird thing is I can't find anything on the internet about a 285 gr .366"/9.3 caliber Bronze Point bullet ....

just so y'all don't think I'm haloosinationing, here's some pics ....

When I had my 9.3x62 made I was lucky and powder valley had a bunch of these I think I got 5-6 bags of the 285gr ppu bulleys. Then nosler had 250gr AB seconds on sale $25 a bag I think I bought 4-5 bags. Speaking of 338 250gr AB sps had these as well, I have a lefty model 70 in a 338 win mag that will not shoot 225’s but will shoot these 250 AB very well.

were the boxes of Rem 9.3x62 ammo the exact same bs ? with the Bronze Point labeled box only with PSP-CL bullets or were the ammo boxes labeled Express without BP ?

My Sako TRGS in 340 Weatherby really, really likes the 250 gr Noodler Accubonds, have a couple boxes of ammo loaded in Wby brass and have 3 boxes of bullets on hand, just got 150 pcs of Peterson 300 Wby brass I'm gonna neck up and pop to 340 Wby, figured I'd get some more bullets to fill those empties, there was still about 6 boxes left after I bought the 4

guess I picked up the dumb ones then, they don't even know what they are, lol they'll shoot the same

time to order a 9.3 cal barrel and build one on a cheap Rem 700 Sportsman in 30-06 I got laying around, probably the 20th project I've considered doing on it and nothings happened yet, lol

Arctic Ammo has a bunch of 35 Whelen brass I can snag and pop into 9.3x62 via false shoulder headspace, cow & pistol powder and I have two buckets of mixed 30-06 brass

Don’t run modern pressure ammo in the 9.3 with brass formed from ‘06 or Whelen. The case head diameter will be to small and end up unsupported. I had two massive case failures running modern pressure loads in hornady brass, which they make from their ‘06 blanks. RCBS dies exacerbated the issue, because they resize cases back to ‘06 dimensions just forward of the casehead.

I made a bunch with r-p cases. I was using those PPU bullets jammed into the lands and imr 4320. Actually, shot them very well. My bud squared me up with some 9.3x62 Nosler brass so I stopped making it.

I’ll be damned…..went to the local Cabelas and on the rack was a brand new Lipsey’s special Ruger M77 Hawkeye African in 9.3x62. I think it was right about $1200 but it wasn’t in new condition. It must’ve been lost in the shuffle because there were scratches and dings all over it. Ruger, especially the M77, isn’t typically synonymous with fancy wood so with little effort that stock could be cleaned up.

Just thought I’d pass that along….👍

ETA….the salesman said that the scratches were from going back and forth into the safe and onto the racks so it is a new rifle.

I dont know about Alaska but recall living in Maine and I dont see how.4 inches of barrel makes a whit of difference when that big.buck clears out and.you try.to get a quick shot off at his quickly fleeing form.



Simple question: do you hunt any big game? If so, what and where do you hunt?

Alaskans trying trying to convince some sort of lower 48 heckler about ideal rifles for Alaskan conditions, is sort of like walking up to some dude licking a fking window........and asking him to please stop doing that.

A waste of time for everyone.

Sure right here in Maine with the usual species. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything but I don't see a couple of inches of barrel to be a hindrance in thick brush. Perhaps YMMV.

Once it warms up here in minneapolis I plan on rebarreling one of my commercial mauser 98's in 9.3x62 I have had the blank and reamer sitting in the shop for about a year. The intent of the 9.3 is to replace my 375 Ruger as my bear gun, I only hunt black bears, can't afford the others. Barrel length will be 18 inches,

I spent a fair amount of time shooting a DARPA-designed sniper rifle they built for the Marines called the XM-3 alongside the standard USMC sniper rifle the M40. The XM-3 has an 18 inch barrel and the M40 a more traditional 26 inch barrel and I really liked how the XM-3 handled better. I do my hunting over bait so range is short and being able to get the gun on target faster has some increased utility and the loss in muzzle velocity will not be felt by the bears I still should get two holes, I shoot Hammers. The 18 inch barrel will come in handy should I end up having to track a wounded bear as the brush can get thick.

Just my two cents,
wade
