Hello everyone. I'm happy to join the AH Family.

Been doing loads of reading over the years on AH

Biltong hunter by nature and my favourite rifle is and old Blundee Mauser in 93x62.

Picked up the nickname a few years ago on Mkuze Ranch and it seems to have stuck

Happy hunting and shoot straight

Inkonkoni, welcome to the AH forum! Looking forward to some pictures and a report on your biltong hunts! Sadly not my favorite treat in Africa. My old teeth have troubles chewing it...LOL!

Wishing you a very warm welcome , Inkonkoni . You will fit right in , amongst us . The 9.3x62 mm Mauser calibre is a personal favorite of mine . Is your Mauser a Type A sporter or a Type B sporter ?

My favorite factory load for the 9.3x62 mm Mauser is the 286 grain Nosler Partition soft nose . What is yours ?

This hard earned trophy of mine was the work of a 9.3x62 mm Mauser ( an early pattern BRNO ZKK - 600 ) and the aforementioned factory load .

Thank you very much for the warm welcome.

My 93x62 is a commercial mauser action manufactured in 1920 according to stamps on the action. Unfortunately I have very little history on the rifle. It was a rifle I bought out of my grandfathers estate and no one in the family seems to know mutch about it. None that is poke to even knew he had the rifle.

My pet load currently is 270 Speer Hot Core bullet running at +/- 2250fps. I don't buy mutch factory ammunition as I rather enjoy the experience of reloading. I have only ever had problems with the load when the man behind the gun did not do his bit.

Beautiful trophy! I don't keep very many as most of my hunts are for meat and biltong... but some good ones do deserve a place on the wall!

Happy Hunting and shoot straight!

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
