I recently acquired a 9.3x62 rifle with a 22.5” barrel. Gathering components to make loads was an adventure as everyone knows during the last 8 months. The only powder I could find that looked like a good fit without getting into my stash for my other calibers was Vihtavouri N150. I was able to acquire 4lbs, so I have plenty to work with. If you look under VV loading table on their website, you will see that max loads are a bit scattered and confusing. I actually started out with a bit over max for what was listed for 286 grain bullets, but there was a load for 293 grain bullets that had a higher charge weight. I ended up using 54 grains of powder. I am pleased with the accuracy of the load, and I did not see any signs of high pressure. I would like to maybe get the velocity a bit higher if possible. Does anyone have any experience with this powder for the 9.3x62? The photo shows my sight in target from 100 yds. The 3 shots together were my last 3 rounds after adjusting the scope. I can say that I was pleased with this powder. The description says that it is a clean burning powder which reduces fouling. After 3 dry patches, the patches came out clean. Thanks in advance for any insight.
