D'Arcy Echols Legend stock. Don't ever plan on selling it . Incredibly accurate too.

I'd give it a good home, right between my .375 H&H, and the .338 RUM. LOL. Thanks.

Always wanted to shoot an Eastern Washington whitetail. Take me hunting and I'll let you shoot it

My partner is the whitetail nut, me I'm just a nut. Late buck is 11/7-11/19 this year probably all, or a big chunk of the last week will see us in camp. We have an open camp folks coming or going depending on the year, the more the merrier. You'd be absolutely welcome, no conditions, to join in.
The camping is probably better than the hunting though. It's a herd of hard hunted deer.
Numbers are down, and the season ends just as the rut starts. The last couple of winters
have been tough, our predator numbers are up, and even for whitetails they're spooky.
Just checked cause I haven't in a while our "WILDLIFE" department wants $396 for a non-resident deer tag. Fuel from Utah being what it is, as much as I'd enjoy meeting you, the truth is you're more likely to hit one on the highway between here and there.
If it's an itch you have to scratch, PM me and I'll do everything I can to help.
The other truth is there are some true monsters out there.

Alan, that's a fine looking rifle, and it should serve you well on big bear or other big game.

Interesting choice of cartridge. The 9.3's seem to be gaining popularity here in North America where they've been largely overlooked for a long time.

Carl,

Will have to wait a while. Wife is on dialysis and it's all I can do to get away for even a day or two.

Per the 9.3x62. If folks would take the time to study it they might find some interesting things. Running a 180 Sierra SPBT @ 2700 fps (somewhat typical '06 velocites), sea level, 30 deg F.

500 yds, drop.........energy
48.7".........1387 fpe (not that I put a lot of faith in fpe)

now the 250 AB in 9.3 running 2600 fps

500 yds, drop..........energy
53.5".......1735 fpe

4.8" more drop but 348 more fpe. To me, at 500 yds, an extra 4.8" of drop is insignificant. The extra 348 fpe is not to be sneezed at along with the extra 70 gr of bullet and .058" of bullet dia, IMHO.

It's extremely east to load for. Plenty of great quality components out there and an increasing # of factory loads should one need to go that route.

Re: Favorite Dangerous Game Round

Sorry to hear about your wife's health issues, if at some point you find yourself this way check in, and maybe we can help put that whitetail on the done list. I've got the bug for a big bodied Canadian whitetail myself.
I've had .358s and .375s, and one can't look at those 286 grain 9.3s without wanting to slap something silly with one. I end up back at the realization I can't own them all, well maybe someday.
Wish your wife well!
Carl
