    Which factory makes 9.3 x 64 calibre rifles?

    Yeah yeah I know everyone makes the `62 version but thats not what I`m really interested in,only the `64 is floating my boat atm.
    I see Voere make the calibre but Mauser dont,if they did I would take an M12...but!

    The only one I knew was Voere and you know that one. Sako make an 85 in 9.3x66 if that tickles your fancy?

    Check out Holts auctioneers John. they sell a lot of firearms, most of the bigger calibres are double rifles though.
    I wish I was half the hunter my dog thinks I am

    Ah the 66 is not what I want thanks.

    There is a 270 Voere here for sale under $500AUD atm..they dont hold their price it seems.

    Buying from OS Sinny (holts) then becomes a pita exercise...no thanks.

    Indeed a hard one. Not easy to find.

    I have seen decent availability of older Husqvarna rifles in 9x57 and 9.3x57.
    Contact Muir, as he is into these, and could advise on rechambering a 9.3x57mm to 9.3x64.

    To my mind, that size case is at its limits with a 250-gr bullet; it does much better in the .35 Whelen and .338-06 with a notch down in weight. If you want to use 250 or 286-gr bullets, the 9.3x62 is great.

    The 9.3x64 is a beast, on par with the 375 HH.
    Apparently the Russians made a Druganov version with the cartridge to be able to penetrate body armour at 600m.

    Have a read of the following.. as prev mentioned the `62 isnt the calibre that I am after.

    RWS factory loads for the 9.3x64 are supplied with 247, 285, and 293 grain bullets. The 247 grain RWS soft point bullet is loaded to a muzzle velocity (MV) of 2760 fps and muzzle energy (ME) of 4178 ft. lbs. The 285 grain RWS soft point bullet has a MV of 2690 fps and ME of 4590 ft. lbs. The heavy 293 grain RWS soft point bullet is loaded to a MV of 2590 fps and ME of 4298 ft. lbs.

    I'm sure the Westley Richards factory would make you one

    Musgrave are making rifles on the vz24 action. I don't think they currently list 9,3x64 but it may be worth speaking to them as I think a few 9,3x64s were built on vz24s in the past.

    Otherwise CZ used to, Voere used to and I believe it was a Blaser R93 option too.
