    @Frodo as I'm doing the stock work I can guarantee it wont look like that at least with the stock it came with lol.
    But its a big belted cartridge to suit the bigger bolt face so my rifle and the 9.3 probably will never be.

    Good stuff on doing the stock work yourself. That's the only way to learn, right?

    I've heard great things about the 9.3

    @Frodo done some minor external refinishing before but not some of the repairs and mods that this one needs.
    Got some more pics to put up but on the project section check out my model E redo. you'll get an idea of what's going on.

    Well had the Sako 9.3 at the range last night, like it a lot, but had quite a bit of trouble, getting consistency, with heavy hand loads,
    guess the old type Sako ring mounts, couldn't take the recoil, and scope flew off, was starting to really wonder, as getting a vertical spread of 300mm, 2-3 shots in same place, and adjust a few clicks, and it would move 100-150 mm up or down, oh well, sore shoulder for nought, 30 plus shots, but did check speeds on hand loads.

    64gr Blc with 270gr Speer, Lapua brass, CCI200, gives 2515fps, pretty good, for a 20" tube. and plenty enough recoil for me.


    62gr CFE.223, Norma brass, CCI200, 250g Accubond gives me 2510fps , scope flew off at this point, still got 63 and 64gr to try,
    61gr was 2455fps, 250 AB,

    Anyone tried the 232gr Norma in there 9.3x62, or other lightweight bullet, I see Trade-X up here has 5 boxes, each of Valcan, and oryx 232gr.

    Do any of you guys who shoot 9.3 use cast bullets? Im looking for some in the 190 to 210 range for a 9.3x57r cape rifle. The 285s that shooter nz casts are too long for the twist rate and keyhole. I got the shotty barrel on the board over duck shooting and would like to "complete the set"

    Have a look around here

    366 (9.3mm) calibre

    I am thinking about casting Bullets for my 9,3X53R and using Black Powder.CBE is a class outfit,I have a few of their molds.

    I ran the 232 vulcans for a bit, they were doing just over 2500fps from memory. Didn't shoot much with them but they worked really well. Noone here stocks them though.

    Thanks, what are you using ? cheep speer and PP 285, seam the most aviable in NZ,
    Just ordered another box of Accubonds, they are accurate, but reduclios expensive, work out at $1.50 each, the PP are .63c and the speers are 70c, can get the Norma 232 Vulken for 1.20 each, but expect shipping to bump that up to close to $1.50, as they are on other side of Canada.

    I currently use the PP 285gr but also had Really good results with the 270gr speer's.
