    See several on Gunbroker, new for around $1100. Must be a new run of these.

    I wish Winchester would make a run of 9.3 62s

    I think its some dealers been holding on too and have not sold. Lipseys only has 1 gun left in stock this morning. Salesman said no plans for another run at this time.

    Found one of these on my local gunshops website this week, picked it up yesterday after placing order on Monday. Price was a little over $1K before tax. Put a Leupold VX-3i 1.5-5x by 20mm on it, hoping to make it to the range next week.

    This caliber really wasn't on my radar a year ago; once I started reading about it on this forum I looked into it, then reading about the Ruger African I got really interested. Thought I missed out but happy to have one in my hands now. Pic below of the one I bought

    Nice looking rifle! I’d like to know how well these rifles are grouping. I know a number of folks on here have them.

    That’s the beauty of this site, things that you didn’t even know existed become things you can’t live without!

    A production rifle might make the ammo companies interested in making some brass and bullets. I’d love a 318 but there’s one bullet and very little head stamped brass.

    But wouldn’t it be cool! Ok, give me a 338 WM and I’d be happy to not have to source the brass!
