Very hot day working a small creek system.Lots of km's for one boar sighted. Dropped him with the 9.3 as he left his wallow. Neck shot as his chest was obscured by a tree. Not a bad boar. heres a pic cheers Mick

Nice Boar!! I like your choice of caliber and shot selection. Your 9.3 x 62 is very close to the 35 Whelen that I've used on them in the States and on a number of African Plains Game. Neck / spine shots for Boar / Hogs are what I strive for.

Nice choppers on that boar!
My last boar had one nice cutter but the other was missing. May have lost it fighting chase dogs in the creek where they "treed" him under some down tree trunks. I shot it a close range and dog handler had to wade into creek to drag out dead floating hog.

You've got to love the way the bigger calibers drop pigs with authority.

Art I love the Whelen on pigs. My last effort was two for one shot using 225grain woodleigh PPSP. Very pleasing results.

Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
I’ll never hunt Africa, but give me please a Jack O’Connor hunt up high in the Canadian Rockies!
Just came from a hunt and already longing for the bush
