    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.
    As I stated,my Uncle did. I looked it up and sure enough..ya will. Then again some shoot slow
    and seldom...

    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
    Armscor 55gr t...

    The really nice part is if they have parts around, upgrades cost zero. The MCX has some new
    uppers coming out.... .308, .300wm...

    Lets change it up, who is the importer? Do all the parts have stamped serial numbers?

    My service match rifle is restricted to having a trigger no lighter than 3.5 lbs. Most of my
    ARs run between 4.5-5.5 lbs. My hunting rifles run around 3. But I do have a couple in the 2.5
    range.Just a...

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.
