9.3x62, my new toy

Not exactly long range equipment (until i figure the trajectory out and prove it in paper), but an interesting rifle all the same. I just built my self a 9.3x62. Its a Parker Hale action,which happens to have an 03 springfield bolt, Lothar Walther heavey sporter barrel, 1 in 14" twist. Hogue Overmoulded (full bedding block, and bedded with Devcon)Stock, Ken Farrel Picatinny rail (a Santa Barbra rail i machined it to fit the parker hale action), custom bottom metal (which isn't finnished yet) everything is coated in Gunkote OD Green. Mike Miller Tactical Intervention sniper sling, I mounted my Schmidt & Bender 3-12x50PMII in Badger Ord 34mm rings on to the rifle, here are a couple of photo's if you are interested, including the first game that fell to it.

should make a good general purpose Africa , Elk/Moose, wild boar, rifle. There are also some pictures of my 30-06, also built by me, Border Barrels 5R 1 in 10. trued Remington 700, HS precision stock, 4-16x50PMII, Lapwood Husher moderator. Pete

Pete,
Hope you are well. Spent last week in Scotland having a go at the hinds. Awesome time despite 2 extreme weather warnings!

Your album link asks for a password; consequently couldn't view the photos...sounds like an interesting set-up though!

I have someone working on some heavy 9.3mm bullets along with some match grade bullets that should help out for long range shooting.

Re: 9.3x62, my new toy

Pete,

Yes, many thanks, I got your email. Apologies for not getting back! In the end I tracked down this:

http://www.jdc.ch/fr/xplorer4.html

Which only cost around 70. It does just about everything (although the tea it makes tastes like piss [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]).

Congrats on the rifle; and some pretty good bucks!
Particularly intrigued by the rifle finish -self applied or a Bundesrepublik (or UK) specialist?

Is 9.3 enough gun for Roe? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
