9.3x62mm Mauser Ammo
9.3x62mm Mauser ammunition is a powerful cartridge with a long history of use by big game hunters. The round is frequently used to hunt moose, bear, and bison as well as a variety of African game such as giraffe and zebra and was introduced in 1905.
Loads for this caliber use heavy 231, 250, or 285 grain bullets with muzzle velocities of around 2,500 feet per second. That's typically what you'll find in-stock and for sale here at Widener's for U.S. civilian shooters (mostly hunters).
Available ammunition for the 9.3x62mm include a soft point load from Sellier & Bellot and an entry in Hornady's Dangerous Game line."

Big game hunters will appreciate the power of this 9.3x62mm ammunition from Czech manufacturer Sellier & Bellot. Originally designed in Germany, this cartridge is effective against most North American large and dangerous game including moose, bear, and elk.
This ammunition fires a 285 grain soft point bullet at 2,280 feet per second. While this configuration may not boast the flattest trajectories, it delivers exceptional penetration that will defeat the tough hide and bone of most tough beasts at reasonable distances. The soft point bullet is ideal for hunting, as it expands readily into the familiar "mushroom" shape for maximum terminal performance and a cleaner, faster kill. At the same time, the bullet does not exhibit heavy fragmentation and will not cause excessive damage to meat or trophies.
Sellier & Bellot ammo uses non corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. Established in the 1820s, S&B currently operates as a division of CBC, the same company that manufactures the renowned Magtech and MEN ammo brands.

The 9.3x62mm cartridge is going strong more than a century after its introduction thanks to innovation by ammo companies like Hornady. This load from Hornady's Dangerous Game series delivers the massive energy required to bring down a variety of tough beasts including bear and elk.
Each cartridge in this box of 20 fires a 286 grain Interlock soft point bullet at a muzzle velocity of 2,360 feet per second. Interlock projectiles are built with a jacket mechanically bound to the core, ensuring that the two pieces do not separate and lose effectiveness as they punch through the hide and bone of the animal. This helps ensure clean kills. The round's soft point design helps prevent unnecessary fragmentation and loss of meat or trophies.
