husky 9.3x57 finally scoped!!!!!!!

it was back in august '19 when i got my gunsmith to do a couple rifles and a pistol. the pistol had a alot of head scratching but he finally got it done. i could have picked up my rifles back in august(when they were done) but they were 1 1/2 hours(gunsmith) away from me and i decided that the guns would would stay until finished. since i am handicapable, i no longer "fix" guns. oh i'll some "fixin" up, but i reserve that for the professionals.

but anyway here it was........


now is



i shoot a 280gr fn gc with 4895(i have to develop THE load) in my husqvarna m46 in 9.3x57. i have a leupold freedom in 2-7x. if it goes 3" at 100 yards(bench/5 shots), i'll be happy with that. in the area that i hunt, a 100 yards loooooooooong shot, but 30-40 yards is more likely. deer/black bear is what i hunt.

i would like to load the 280gr using 4895 at 1700-1800fps but i'll see.

Norma still loads the 9.3x57 and offers some load data (but probably not for 4895). You should be able to get closer to 2,000 fps in the HVA 46 mode or more if you have the HVA 146 model.

Handloader magazine had a good article not that long ago about handloading for the 9.5x57. Nice cartridge....and your rifle looks very nice!!

You can buy the digital version of that issue here: https://www.wolfeoutdoorsports.com/h...83-april-2013/
