Thread: Loads for 9.3x62 using Barnes 250 gr. TSX

    Default Loads for 9.3x62 using Barnes 250 gr. TSX

    I bought some 250 grain TSX bullets for my 9.3x62. Anybody out there with a Barnes manual that could give me a few loads to try? A scan of the 9.3x62 page(s) would be great, but not if it would violate any copywrite laws. Can't find a Barnes manual anywhere in Fairbanks, and the new issue isn't available anywhere on the net that I can find. Thanks.

    I haven't loaded that bullet in that caliber but I do have the Barnes #3 book and I don't think there is any TSX data in the book for that caliber. Don't you think you could start with the data for another 250 grain bullet and work that way? I'll say that the data for the 270 Speer bullet and the 250 X bullet is the same loads, maybe you could try that. If you haven't loaded for the caliber before, can I assume you haven't bought powder yet either? RL-15 and Vihta N140 are good Powders as is Varget. H4350 is too slow and H4895 may be too fast for optimum performance. Do you think you can hit 2600 with that bullet? I haven't used a 250 grain bullet from the 9.3x62 on game but would think it could get the job done. There are a few around and the TSX seems very popular surely somebody has used them. I think the book is available directly from Barnes and from some of the through-the-mail suppliers.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?

    Default Barnes Data

    Chilly-I have a #2 Barnes manual, list data for the XFB, NOT the Tiple Shock. Some following data


    Powder Start Vel Max Vel

    H380 55.0 2407 59.0 2582
    H414 56.0 2468 60.0 2644
    IMR 4895 52.0 2355 56.0 2536
    IMR 4064 53.0 2377 57.0 2556
    IMR 4350 59.0 2436 63.0 2601

    Cases were Norma, Fed 210 primer, 24 inch barrel.

    I have excellent luck with the H414, good accuracy and velocity. I have loaded it with the XFB and the Nosler.

    I have bought the 250gn grain Triple Shock but have not loaded any yet. Hopes this helps!

    Default 9.3 H414

    Ditto on the H414 for all 9.3 bullets. H414 gives the best velocity and pressure ratio. Magnum Magazine in South Africa had an article on the 9.3 x 62 and liked the H414. My loads
    hover around 56 grains, but work up slowly. I use a Steyr Pro-Hunter.

    By the way, Magnum ignited a major squabble in an article dissing the 9.3 against the 375. Both camps are strong in Africa... especially anyone with German heriitage.

    I joined thier "copper club" one of its few perks is that you get access online to the volume 4 reloading data for available calibers.

    Default Barnes website

    Chilly,

    I don't know if you've looked at Barnes' website yet, but it has a couple loads for the 9.3x62. Here is a link. It's useful for other rounds too.

    Default Nosler website

    Here is Nosler's website with a few 9.3 loads. I would think the starting loads would be safe even though you are using a different bullet. Just work up carefully.
