Two questions:
1. For the CZ owners, my wood/finish is soft which generally prevents me from taking it out except for when I know I'll be sitting in the safety of a blind. Are you refinishing them or just accumulating war wounds/stories?
2. I understand the JES rebore is pretty affordable, but it's not that much cheaper than a re-barrel. Why is this the preference for a conversion?

That's a beautiful fiddleback on that fs. No wonder you're taking care of it.

Almost 90 now, Dad's not much longer for this world. Maybe someday someone will buy it and take it to Africa on safari, or to Alaska on a bear hunt!

Wow, what a rifle! I’ve owned a couple 9.3’s and may or may not get another. However, if I saw THAT one for sale, I’d be rifling through the couch cushions to scratch up the funds!

We'd be in a bidding war!

Beautiful rifle...

Great to see another thread on the 9.3x62! I wanted one ever since I first read about it in Cartridges of the World some 35 years ago. This year, newly freed from the shackles of matrimony, I finally got one (a Husqvarna). And since then I have been hoovering up additional information about loading it up and using it.

I did think it was interesting that one of the first replies to this thread commented about the rough bolt on his Husqvarna. Even after having some work done on mine, the bolt is still a bit rough. To the point where I have considered getting it completely redone. I'm concerned though, that I could practically get half a new rifle for the cost of a good repair job.

I look forward to reading every page of this thread.

Edit - added a picture of my new baby. 8.2 pounds empty. I love how slender she is, despite having a reputation for being an absolute killer. The fixed 4x B&L scope dialed in very nicely. My experience using that scope/mount combination was always good with lighter cartridges and after 39 rounds, I have not noticed any issues shooting the factory 285/286 grain bullets. I look forward to further building my confidence in her and, hopefully, one day taking her up to Alaska or Canada for a try at a moose.

What model is that Husqvarna? I'd love to have one but they are scarce.

There are a bunch of them on Gunbroker. They are all old Swedish moose rifles. The guy who imported them converted a bunch of old 9.3x57's to 9.3x62. Here's one of the ones he still has for sale:

https://www.gunbroker.com/item/1045111539

I think this one is a little bit nicer than mine in some ways, but not as nice in others (I don't like the modifications that someone did to the bolt on mine). A bit of beeswax did wonders for the stock on mine. Apparently the brass tacks on the stock represent moose kills. He has a pile of the rear sights for them too.

I got mine, with a pile of the Hornady factory seconds ammo, for what to me was a reasonable price (about what he is selling those for). While in my heart I would prefer to have an original Oberndorf one, I like that the one I got has already been used for hunting. It looks nice while not being so nice that I would be afraid to clamber over wet rocks with it.

I recently picked up a CZ 550 FS in 9.3X62, mounted a Meopta 1-6X24 with an illuminated #4

Was at a local shop recently and they put their 9.3X62 on clearance, bought X4 PPU & X1 Federal

Can a military 8x57 be rebored to 9.3 x 62? It seems a bit close in size. Maybe enough to make it difficult? I don't remember ever reboring anything that close doing machine work where the precision required would make or break the project. Usually had some tolerance available. Maybe should ask this in the gunsmithing forum. RZ.
