I am going to have a 1909 Arg.98 action blue printed and barreled and stocked and suspect it to be done by spring. I am deliberating on a calibre. This being a really fine Mauser action would do well with a 9.3 chambering, would be fitting.
What is the availability of brass for the 9.3 x 64 brenneke and can it be bought enough at a time say like a hundred peices at a time? I understand it rivals the .375 H&H and that would be ideal for us Alaskan hunters.
Some have mentioned this round is about as dead as a cartridge can get--I seem to be abit doubtful. Perhaps this is because I would like to have this cartridge built in the Mauser. Bullet selection is good so that is a plus.
Reloading this seems to easy enough and accuracies from all I have gathered is extremely good but like I said I lack experience first hand. I was contemplating the new .375 Ruger chambering in this but........it's a Mauser.
Who in America stocks brass and is it readily available? Is it troublesome to get, like 20 pcs. now and wait for the distributor to get more? Do you suspect this round to be dead in yrs to come. History favors the round recently because of bullet selection. Yrs back when it first was introduced the .375 H&H had the edge and this round fell into the shadows but now it seems hopeful that it is revived? Would hate to get this set up and find yrs down the road I cannot locate brass.
This is I hope is a handloading question and not misplaced and should have gone to the shooting forum. This doesn't have the technical questions of powder charge wgt./velocities/bullet weight as a question on future reloading of the round.
What do you figure? I suspect as well that for all intended purposes this cartridge will do a future sheep hunt and other necessary subsistence requirments ie..., grizz hunts/kills and moose at ranges expected.
your ideas please.
