Very good Article Monish.
I think that cal. 9,3x62 was the inspiration for the English 375H&H, which eventualy repleced the 9,3.
Personally, I prefer 9,3x62 due to better penetration of the bullet and less recoil.
All the best .

Witold I just may have to grab a 9.3x62 just to see if it's a nice as you say

Let's not get carried away here gentlemen! I happen to be a very big fan of my .404. I had it made as a present for myself (I wasn't getting it from anyone else!) at a time when the .404 wasn't as popular (if I can even say that about the .404) as it currently is. This is at least as grand an old cartridge as the .416 Rigby, but while that gun was somewhat "aristocratic," the .404 was far more " pedestrian", which means way less expensive (at the time). And since I like to think I'm pretty much in the middle, it seemed to me I should have both!

You're not going to be able to pry it out of my hands!

Now stop hijacking this thread by threatening to take my beautiful rifle from me!

"I wasn't getting it from anyone else". I know exactly what you mean!!!

When resizing, I only bump the shoulder enough so that the cases will seat properly without undue pressure when closing the bolt. This helps minimize stretch and I know I've got well more than three shots out of my brass. I hope I guess that I'm not setting myself up for a problem, but I let the brass tell me when it's done. I've only seen minor splits and in other cases you can see that the case is getting ready to split, these I obviously throw away.
basically neck sizing the case is the best way of getting more shots out of your brass

True, but always seems for me that the neck sized only rounds are hard to close/open the bolt with.

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
