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."

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.
Hornady ammo is loaded in Grand Island, Nebraska using non corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. The aptly named Dangerous Game line of ammunition features magnum and big bore cartridges for hunters seeking challenging quarry.
