    Awesome, the more the merrier !

    I have only recently sighted mine in with a load developed using the 250gn T.S.X's.

    I have no need to "stretch" mine in to buffalo hunting, so the lighter bullets suit me fine. My rifle shoots the 250' in to less than an inch routinely and at 2700fps they should prove dynamite on most soft skinned game.

    The 9.3x64mm is really growing on me.

    what game do you guys intend using 250s on?
    the barnes would probably handle bigger game than the accubond?

    I imagine it'll work pretty well on anything in North America, including brown bear. It's certainly more than enough for everything else.

    I took a 9.3x62mm to South Africa. 286 grain A-frames at 2500 fps thumped everything I shot at. I added weight to a Husqvarna Mauser to make it weigh 9 1/2 lbs. Comfortable to shoot and not to much to carry. I really like that rifle.

    Do you mind sharing your load? I’m just working up loads for mine.

    WAB, I've got a sheet from Western Powders for Big Game and the 9.3. If you're comfortable with the Woodleigh reloading manual, you'll be fine with this data sheet - they're showing 2500+ for 286 gr.

    I bought some Big Game, but it has been too hot, and too many mosquitoes, in my reloading room to have worked up any loads. I'm also getting better than 2400 with sub-max load from Alliant Powerpro 2000MR
