In reply to the above posts; *post 16 Bebo, yes without a doubt no-one is going to argue that, compared to the .375h&h, the 9.3x64mm is ALMOST obsolete, almost. Yes, components ARE difficult to source and YES the .375 IS an excellent cartridge that does most/all jobs asked of it in an exemplary manner. I know as I have two rifles chambered for the .375 currently, both used A LOT on buffalo, feral cattle, wild boar and feral horses and they (the .375's) do these jobs in a hassle free manner. For most hunters the .375 makes the most sense, without a doubt. BUT, the 9.3x64mm IS NOT DEAD. Components, as difficult to find as they are, THEY ARE available. Brass from Norma and R.W.S is relatively simple to find. With 200-300 cases your almost set for life, bullets are common and easy to source and dies are available from several sources. The 9.3x64 is a cartridge I have had a facination with for many, many years and to me is something that I wish to gain some praticle field experience with on the game mentioned above. *post 17 Classicsafari, Adam, I've seen pics of that rifle that you have posted elsewhere. Very nicely done. What action is this one built on ? Also, I am chasing a variety of load data and would be interested in hearing what loads your man has built up for that gun, if that is possilbe. Thanks in advance. *post 20 Karl Stumpfe, Hey Karl, how's it ? Who are YOU calling short !!!!!!!!! (they say people who live in glass houses shouldn't walk around in the nude !!). You must be the metric caliber Mogul ! I knew you had a 7x64 and an 8x68, but a 9.3x64 AS WELL, SHEEESH. Is that your .450 at the top of the heap ? Nice battery of rifles there Karl. Cheers, Paul.
