    In the summer, It can get pretty bad here in NH. I try and get out mid morning as the sun is
    behind us. The black flies and mosquitos Can eat you alive, so bringing a larger medium bore or
    magnum hand...

    Ha, Ha! Predictable? Not where I live, we've only had about 15 inches of rain so far this year.
    Hell, We got over an inch yesterday. The humidity varies from 25% to 100%, but is usually
    around 45%. Th...

    I use Remington Golden Saber 125gr .357 mag in my snub nose. 1,220fps 413ft lbs in a 4" bbl.
    Not quite as low as a .38spl but very controllable.For self defense ammo, Liberty is not bad.
    It is a light...

    I bought a 995 sight unseen the 1st year they came out, $110.00 with a compensator, 2 extra
    mags, Mag pouch that attaches to the butt stock. I decided to give it a torture test. I did not
    clean the ac...

    I have to disagree with you J.P.. One of the reasons that I quit shooting the 300 WM long
    range,and started shooting the 6.5 Creedmoor and 260 Remington was that they perform the same
    job with a small...

    So I went to a gun show yesterday looking for a Mosin Nagant. I ended up finding these two
    beauties left is a 1916 Lee Enfield SMLE. Doesn't have the matching magazine but everything
    else is matchin...

    There are a lot of folks dropping caliber diameter in competition. Yeah okay, you win. Better
    tell them fellas competing in F class that their choice of calibers are no good. I notice you
    are spitball...

    Get the 5R Mil spec, it is a better rifle.You can get a decent scope for around $1000. The
    Sightron SIII is a very good scope, as are the Vortex Viper PST series.The Sightron has better
    glass and trac...

    so your "experience" is this one paragraph?? Really?An interesting note is that the Lapua
    123gr Scenar bullet has a BC of .547 which is better than the 30 cal 190gr Sierra Matchking
    (.533), and if i...

    I really like the 308 Winchester cartridge and have owned a Remington Varmint Synthetic for
    over 20 years. Does everything I want it to do, even with the 1:12 twist stock barrel.If I had
    it to do over...

Thanks for the links on DGRs . Rugers,Alaskan in 375 R in an 8 lb rifle. - too light for caliber ?

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.
