    9.3 x 74, Ruger #1, Want To Purchase

    The 9.3 metrics have my attention lately. Looking for a plain jane, #1, in a not so plain jane caliber. With all the scammers on the “wanted to buy” heading, I’d like to only deal with mature AH members. If you have a rifle for sale, please post “pm sent” before sending a pm. What I appreciate...

    Wanted 9.3x62 Bullets

    Raptor59 helped me with Accubonds (Thank you!) but the 250g A Frames are still a no go. Load development will start regardless. Thank you all for the help!

    9.3x62 - Large or Large Magnum Primers?

    I’ve been a handloader for a long time- but I tend to be old school and big bore. Primers types were always easy to determine. The 9.3x62 has had my attention for a long time… just now, it has my focused attention. From what I gather, 286g bullets work best with RL-17 and Big Game powder. 250g...

    So, I Was In The Loading Room Today...

    Got moved up to summer cabin in Sandpoint Idaho, for summer. I was supposed to get on weeds, mowing, planting, spring cleaning- I went straight to reloading room and loaded .505 Gibbs, .500 Jeffery and .450 NE! Good to be back!

    ZIMBABWE: Mokore Safaris Sengwa Research Tuskless Elephant & Plains Game

    I’ve hunted w Duckworth’s a few times. Charted airplane one, drove Harare one… drive is best in my opinion. The drive puts you into the mood of Africa, before you reach camp. The anticipation build to reach camp, start Safari, for me, was priceless. Gary Duckworth, Barry and Bertie, Neil and...

    Which Elephant Rifle and cartridge?

    Literally on a plane back from Zim / Africa now. .450 NE, 480 gr solid was one shot down at 20 yds, side brain. .500 Jeffery, 570 gr solid on previous hunt w Ele was same result. This year, red dot on double made things 100% easier, with aging eyes. Good luck. Shot placement is everything.

    Any fly fishing recommendations for chasing King Salmon in Alaska?

    I have a whole fish camp / boats / motors / gear on the Nushigak for the brave to take over! We set up camp early June, for years, and had a great time with the Kings and sockeyes (silvers in early Aug). Been there, done that- plus sold my beloved 1956 DeHaviland Beaver on floats. Fishing isn’t...

    .505 Gibbs Load Data

    John is spot on.. (but I’d even suggest 2100-2200 fps), 2200 fps, with the right bullet, is the .505 sweet spot. Don’t be afraid of fillers- the end user doesn’t know the difference… but the shooter does! Powder burn rates and powder charge weights make you love a .505 or hate it. Enjoy!

    Heym 470NE 88B

    Is there any way you could show the “build sheet”… length of pull, barrel lengths, etc? Beautiful rifle. I think it would be difficult for me to sell this beauty if it were mine.

    450 Dakota vs 458 Lott

    100% w Flewis. I own both. Both are absolute beasts… but the Lott, coupled with African .458 WM availability, makes the Lott an easy winner. Outside the ammo nod, both are good bets on the largest game.

    Papabaer55, if you found the RCBS Press Bushing #57191 ( 1 1/4” -12 to 1” -14 ), I’d love to purchase from you. RCBS was lost on my call with their correct part number and everything- but then again I didn’t talk to Robin, either. If available- thanks. If not, no big.

    What's the ideal / preferred rifle weight for the following cartridges?

    My .500 J is 11.5 lb, mercury in the stock- a joy to carry and shoot. One of my favorite rifles.
