    So what do you guys think. Both have a semi-exotic appeal. Both sling nice heavy pills, around the same general velocities, 2300-2600 depending on bullet weight. Both have similair brass availability (the 9.3 can be formed off of 06 brass). Either way, the gun will be a custom job, thanks for the advice.

    I cant comment on the Styer round, beyond the fact that I hear good things about it from a few users.

    I have a 9.3x62 and really like it. Bullets I have tried run from 235gn to 320gn, but I mainly use a 286gn bullet at around 2350 fps. Its easy to load for, a lot of fun to shoot and effective on game.
