    I feel jealous jpat, your rifle looks so goodThank you. It is light, very handy, and quite
    accurate even with cheaper brass case commercial ammo. It is accurate enough with 53gr
    handholds for vermin, ...

    I'm really liking this carbine. The hammer is used by Bushmaster, DPMS, and others.I don't know
    about the rest of the trigger group.

    I am being advised to avoid the Sig Sauer Mosquito .22LR pistol because it is not reliable.
    Does anyone have any personal experience with this semi-auto by Sig and is it indeed not
    reliable? generati...

    Took the new toy out for a shoot and BBQ. Great day. Shot for close to 5.5 hours. I really like
    it. With a dot, it is not as precise as I'm use to, but picking up targets was easy. I pulled
    out a 24/4...

    Fast shooting and the heat 'will' burn that barrel out. It seems there a lot'a pro's and con's.

    Take a peek at the chart. With a 1-8, your rifle will do best with 62 gr and up. Below that is
    not dangerous- just not the best accuracy.167383As far as a factory load, I freely admit a
    liking for Fed...

    I've got an older one, no dovetail. Blueing is pretty thin, More brown, but it will likely stay
    that way as it is a great shooter. Pulled the trigger on it about 40 years ago. It's a 1952.

    Installed a set of Mbus sights and torqued the qaud rail. Very solid now. Quad rail was about
    10fp give or take 2lb either way, now it is 20fp. Still free floated. Ordered 500 rounds of

I was researching the BC for the 338 vs 7 mm debate and I decided to look up your favorite .366:

Nosler 250 gr. BC .494

Nobler 286 gr. SD 307. BC .494. Accubond

Woodleigh 320 gr. SD 341 BC .457

With these high BCs, they just might turn the "potato checker" into a longer range weapon. Worth a try at least...

GUNS - June digital edition "Strictly Down the Middle" - article on 9.3 x 62. Enjoy !
February 11, 2013  •  05:28 PM
I never checked my comment section. I do love the 9.3. I use Speer 270gr sp and Hornady 286gr sp. I use the 270's on whitetail, but they are addiquite for black bear. The Hornady have a BC of .410 and an SD of .305. With a 150 yard zero in my x57 at 2100fps MV it packs 2100fpe, at 200 yards -4.4" and 1900fpe, 250yards -11.8" and 1715fpe. A slight hold over out to 250 yards and it is still a wrecking ball. I'm fine w/ it at 150 yard max and iron sights.
