As i have finished my 8x57 except for the bluing and thinking about a 9.3x62,( my son has a Schultz & Larson 9.3x62) i was looking at a CZ 550 in 270 to build one out of but found a Parker hale 1200 in 30/06 at less than half the price of the CZ. Its in excellent condition but the barrel is badly corroded may be used with corrosive ammo ? so i purchased it, borrowed some 286 grain ppu ammo off
my son, magazine length looks good it feeds out out the magazine well, will order a barrel my favorite gun smith has a reamer

@rdog
Take the barrel off it and send it down to Veronica at MAB/Tse in Brisvagas and get then to do yhe profile the same as your original.
They do good chrome molybdenum and stainless barrels that are very accurate. I have three if their barrels and all will group less than three quarters of an inch or better.

@rdog - we all have a weakness. No use in apologizing for it. Looking forward to pics of the new build.

I built one in 9.3x62 on a parker hale and it shoot great and didn't have to do anything to this rifle to get it to feed great. Used it on my 2018 safari.

You might consider a rebore. I have a Mannlicher-Schoenauer, originally in .270 Winchester, which I had rebored and rechambered to 9.3X62 and it works like a charm. No need to copy the original barrel profile.

@xausa
Problem is no one in Australia does a rebore any more. Kieth Bridgeman used to but no longer.
It is cheaper to buy a new barrel than send it to the US and return it.

TSE did a 303 no4 sporter for me very good work, but i want the 9.3 barrel heaver than the original 30/06 i think i will get a Lother Walther pre fit like my 8x57 i will have to check the profile, or get a heaver profiled blank & have my gun smith screw & chamber it.

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
