Thread: 9,3x57 cast bullet loading data

  1. #1

    9,3x57 cast bullet loading data

    who shoots cast in their 9,3x57?
    what is reasonable 100 yard accuracy?
    what loads do you use?
    do you hunt with it?

    i have a GERMAN sporting rifle built on a small ring, large thread mauser action. it is a very trim rifle and lets me know just how trim it is every time i touch the trigger. i has a 24" very slim barrel which helps with the velocity. it sports a barrel banded front ramp and a receiver mounted peep. with this rifle using varget, 270 speers, and reformed remington 8x57 brass i can get under 2" at 100 and about 5" at 200. plenty good for this setup, as i use this for either bear hunting or when we do deer drives. it is also wonderful to haul out durring our clubs "sight in days". we'll have some lawer/doctor type with the newest/greatest thing ever made that couldn't hit the side of the barn if standing in it, and i'll sit down next to him and crack off 5 in a row at the 6" gong at 200 yards as fast as i can, hitting every time. i love being a like that sometimes.

    Results at 100 yards, 24 grains of 5744 behind 270g Mt Baldy boolits sized at .367

    MV is somewhere around 1600 fps. Probably why the target strike is low and right of POI.

    I'm getting limited success with 358 boolits paper-patched to groove diameter over 43 grains of IMR3031. Good velocity but get occasional fliers at 100 yds. Pretty cool to see the paper strips flying out radially in the muzzle blast.

    My Husky has a such long freebore that cast boolits can't touch the lands. Anyway, my research is at a standstill until I get some more boolits from Mt Baldy or get a custom mould cut.

    I've got some cast with gas checks,some regular cast[285 gr],currently using IMR 4064, but have also some 3031, H4350,and IMR 4895.I'm using a Husky based on a 96 action.Unfortionately, very little load data is available,and I'm relying on information from other Husky owners

    rather,

    Out of those powders I'd try the IMR4895 behind some of those GC 285s at about 36~38 grains. Should put you in the 1700 fps range.

    Welcome to the Castboolit forum Hannod and congratulations on your hunting success with your 9.3X57..
    What rifle are you shooting your 9.3's out of?
    I don't have access to N140 loading data so I am wondering what the vel. you are getting for your load.
    I have a 96 Husky and 98 Husky on 9.3X57 but haven't had time to load and shoot for them lately..

    Hello! This loading was laborated by me for my friends model 46 Husqvarna.
    Me myself has a Husqvarna model 146 with a brand new Lothar Walther button rifled barrel (cut to original profile) never fired a jacketed bullet and never will.
    The Mooses declared was shot by my friend Jonny (the guy with the model 46) and he is responsible for over 100 Mooses with 6,5 Swedish and 9,3mm. Mauser.
    He is the test guy of my creatings and he wants more of the 9,3:s.
    There is no signs of overpressure in either the 46 nor 98 with 47 grs. N140.
    The powder is finnish (Finland) and is similar to Norma 203B. It`s faster than IMR 3031 but quite similar to IMR 4895 (be careful, go from down to up). They say that a BHN of 12 is better for thin skinned animals and I agree, but that will take me a new lab. and field tests on big game that may take maybe 4-5 Years until it`s something to release in press. I have an old Oeler model 33 and I will cronograf the 9,3 cartridges and be back for information, but they are in the 2000-2100 fps. Window./ Hans.

    I've recently aquired a x62 and a x57. the x57 is not put together yet the but x62 is complete.

    haven't had time to shoot them yet, but after reading the effectiveness of them, I can see myself using them lots.

    Hannod,
    A 300gr boolit at 2000-2100 should really put the hurt on a moose!
    No wonder your friend likes your 9.3 cast boolits..
    I will have to try H4895 under my 283gr. NEI boolit this summer if it ever quits raining!
    Meanwhile Rome burns!

    I have a 9.3x62 and have read where I can expect 2400-2500 max loads with a 290gr boolit, or a 286gr J-word.

    I'm not sure I'd want to shoot that too often, but it would be nice to develop a load of that level to have on hand for hunting if one needed to reach out a bit.

    otherwise, I'm thinking 290gr boolit around 2100fps gives one about 250yds minute of moose!
    and that should be quite gentle

    Did you know that a 300-320 gr. Boolit from a 9,3X62 outperformes and outpenetrates 270 gr boolit from a 375H.H Magum according to Australian Buffalo hunting guides.
