    Short Barreled 9.3x62 rifle

    Good question. I also had accuracy problems. If it was caused by the gun or me is an open question because i am not used to shoot that big calibers like 9,3x62.

    Short Barreled 9.3x62 rifle

    I had a good shot into the chamber, so the Norma Oryx with 285 grains made an excellent performance. The gemsbok walked obviously shocked about 100-150 meters into the bush were we found it. My rifle (Merkel Helix) has a barrel with a length of 56 cm. The bullet did not penetrate all the way.

    I wish Donald Trump all the best for his fight against the lying medias. Truth ist the first step for recovery. Anyway, the USA are bankrupt and they need a Gorbatchov.

    Best Rifle for all Deer hunting

    My Merkel Rifle RX.Helix is my companian with the good old 8x57IS caliber. IS means Infantrie stärker (not islamic state !!! ;-)) which is the same as Magnum. 8x57IS was the caliber of the german army in WWII. I shot my zebra with it. For Oryx i used the 9,3x62.

    Dang German glass

    I enyoy reading about german quality but Swaro is austrian. :) Leica and Zeiss (No. 1 worldwide in optic quality) are german, but not cheaper. ;)

    Who owns and uses these calibres

    The 9,3x62 was created by the gun smith Otto Bock in Berlin for the german colonies. It was designed for hunting big antilopes, especially Oryx . For those who want to know a bit more about this caliber: It brings a lot of power into the target but the bullet falls if your distance to target...
