RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 9,3x62

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 9,3x62

The 9.3x62 is ideally suited for hunting in the woods and at medium shooting distances. When used on roe deer, it causes very low damage to the game's meat

The 9.3x62 was developed around the year 1905 and was to be used especially in the German African colonies of that time. However, very soon the cartridge was used with great success on Central European large game, in particular on moose, red deer and wild boar, so that it did not stay a pure "Africa cartridge". 

The RWS loads with bullet weights from 11.9 g to 19.0 g increase the universality of this popular large game cartridge.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Cone point-bullet

9,3x62

The ingenious coordination between the Tombak jacket and core material provides flexible adaptation to the target resistance. Whether small or large game, the projectile mushrooms in a controlled manner and transfers energy uniformly into the game whilst still retaining an effectively enlarged residual body for exit. The external shape of the projectile provides ideal prerequisites for high precision and low air resistance.

Cone point-bullet

Construction Cone point-bullet

 

  1. Tail constriction for a mass stable residual body and a sure bullet exit
  2. Ballistically optimized cone shape for an extended trajectory
  3. Tombac jacket 
  4. Lead core for balanced deformation behaviour with different types of game
  5. Long bullet cylinder for highest precision

Mode of action

Shot on a block of gelatine with a length of 35 cm. Shot distance: 100 Meters. Caliber: .30-06

  1. Energy transfer on lightweight game (at 10 cm): 1.557 J
  2. Energy transfer on heavyweight game (at 15 cm): 2.461 J
  3. Total energy transfer: 3.302 J
  4. Maximum energy: 206 at 10 cm
