I emailed Woodleigh for some reloading data on the .366 caliber 320 grain Weldcore bullet in the 9.3 x 62.
They recommend Vihtavuori N550 from 55.5-63 grains for a velocity at the top end of 2,330 fps. I am surprised that you can achieve this velocity with a 320 grain bullet in the 9.3 x 62. Should hit like "The Hammer of Thor"!

This is the largest velocity listed in the Woodleigh manual for the 320gr bullet, however it is only listed under the one bullet weight. the N-140 is listed in all bullet weights. The latest Woodleigh reloading manual is available at tradeexcanada.com for around $45.00.

Anyone have their manual with a load for the 9.3 Hydro, particularly for IMR 4895. That would be for the 9.3x62.

What is with the little green ball on the end of that bullet, doesn't look like a Hydro with that?

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
