Question to owners of the 9x3 x 62 caliber hunting rifle:
What is the smallest animal you have hunted with the 9.3 and what is your largest animal??
Do you use your 9.3 x 62 as a plains game hunting rifle?
Springbok and buffalo. These are not calibre limits they are my choice of game. I grew up shooting for the pot, I would not have made myself very popular shooting something that was too small. The buffalo was an opportunity that could not be refused! I cannot afford to shoot anything bigger!
I tend to use my 9,3 mainly in bosveld and boar in the UK/Europe.
If I am to go after pg specifically in open country then I will take either my 300WM or 375H&H. Here my choice will often be governed by how energetic I feel and how far I am going to walk! 375H&H can get heavy after a long walk on a hot day!
