    If he won't, Kevin Weaver at Weaver Rifles in Colorado has a reamer. He built my 9.3-375 Ruger. He will make dies as well.

    @450 Dakota I looked them up and sent them a email. My question is how do you rate the work they did for you. and what are you seeing as performance vs a 9.3x62?

    Kevin has built 4 rifles for me and did work on a couple of others. I would not hesitate to use him again at all. He will stand behind his work. You are going to gain significant fps over the 9.3 x 62. Look at the data for a 375 Ruger with 260 grain Accubond and that is about what you will get for a 250 grain 9.3 in the 375 case but better BC & SD.

    Thank you for the information. It is good to hear you are happy with his work. I have contacted him and am considering having the rifle built.

    A number of years ago John Barsness/Charlie Sisk put together the .360BS (.350 Rem mag case necked up to .366 dia). Wrote up a piece in Handloader if anyone’s interested.

    it seems that the BS is about equivalet to the 9.3x62, and useable in a 308 length magazine.
    my original suggestion of a 9.3 on the 338 mag case was similar in concept, but to have an equivalent of the 9.3x64 with more readily available brass.
    i was not chasing super ballistics, just a 9.3x64 equivalent.
    for me the x64 is a good balance of power, recoil, and terminal performance with the right bullet.
    if you already have a 9.3x64 and cannot get brass, a good gunsmith could machine the chamber to accept a belt, and away you go with a boltface modification.
