So I have been bitten by the bug again and have a burning desire to buy a new old rifle. I have been smitten buy them cute little Husqvarna sporters, chambered for the 9.3x57 cartridge. I think that they are great looking rifles with their thin short forends and rounded pistol grips, thats just my opinion and its the same one that says my Drothaar dog is pretty, but now I feel I have to have one.
Anyway I wanted to know if any of you guys had owned, shot, or loaded for one. I'm not looking for super good ballistics, they just aren't to be had in this package, and thats OK. I just think that they are neat little guns and that one of them might just make me a cool "Poor man's euro rifle", since a Blaser or something like that is not going to be in my budget anytime soon.
From what I can gather and understand it is a mild cartridge with slightly better than 35REM ballistics. The 35 is one of my favorites so I think that it would fit right in around my place. And IMO one of those short light rifles might be great black bear medicine on the baits next spring.
So lets here what you think and if I'm way off base anywhere in my assumptions.
