I have finished the 9.3x64 and spent the weekend getting to know it. I started with a 1950 J.C. higgins action [ FN Mauser} that we fitted a Douglas Barrel, stainless, to. Opened the bolt face a very little bit and the feed rails a very little bit. Installed a NECG Win. type safety and a NECG trigger. Put into a English Walnut stock that I had Great American Gunstock do and I bedded the action and floated the barrel. I put conetrol rings on it with a 3to9 Swarovski. I left the barrel in the white and had a black bake on finish put on the action and bottom metal. Lapped the bolt and jeweled it. Black limb saver recoil pad. Left the barrel at 27 inches. I loaded up 50 rounds of 286 nos. pat with hodgon, RL and Imr and went to the range here in Wrangell Friday at Noon. Wife came out at 7 pm to make sure I had not shot myself. Told her it takes a long time at fire 1 and clean fire 2 and clean fire 3 and clean but a guy got to do what he's got to do. I shoot 5 shot groups and I never got a group larger than one and a half inch all day and some less than a inch. It made little diff. in the powder I loaded. Shot about 4 inches high at 100, or 3 and a half. Came home and necked sized the cases and loaded 74 grains of RL19 because I had it and the gun did not care. Back to the range on Sat, target at 200 yds by my range finder 5 rounds into 1 and a half inches at 2500 ft per sec on my croney. I got the target and I will save it so you can come and look. You can go to the range with me and you to can do this. I love this 9.3. Cases or brass from Huntingtons, they have it. By the by it was waaarm on friday and sat and I did all the shooting in a t-shirt, I would not have shot that many rounds through my 375s and been in any shape to type, This gun weights no more than my 375s [Sako and Kleinguenther] but kicks a lot less, I have put together 5 guns the last year and a half all on mauser actions and all for me. This will be my favorate. I am done building guns......I think.
