    Or change a base to shoulder length variation, like Ackley Improved vs Brown-Whelen vs Hawk.

    in this case it is not about being done before.
    it is about the low availability of 9.3x64 brass, and easily getting a ballistic twin for those who like thgose ballistics.

    jp,
    the x62 can't compete wth the x64.
    the 375 on the other hand is about the same and you are right, stuff is more available for it.

    So I went the other way. I based the .30 Hembrook Long on the 9.3x64 brass, with the shoulder moved forward and blown out, and necked down to .30 caliber.

    So far I am seeing 3450 fps from 165 grain SST bullets using Superformance powder and Tula LRM primers.

    Reamers are available from Manson and PT&G, dies from Hornady.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    mozz,
    change that pt bullet to a swift aframe or northfork, and it will be a real killer.
    you would be surprised at the difference.

    In the 1920s, DWM offered the 9,3x70, a necked down .404 Rimless. (DWM 569)

    Rifles are still available from Reimer Johannsen, Germany.

    Lee offers the die set....cases easily can be formed from .404

    the poor old tug bullet would have been hard pressed to withstand this one.

    At this time (the 1920s and 30s), the "poor old TUG" was the spearhead of bullet technology.

    that is true, and it is still a good bullet today.
    but it is not a swift aframe or a northfork..
