RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 9,3x74 R

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre 9,3x74 R

The 9.3x74 R is an excellent large game cartridge for break-open guns, no matter whether break-open rifle, over-and-under rifle drilling, drilling or double rifle. In combination guns hunters like to use it with a smaller cartridge suitable for roe deer (e. g. in a barrel insert). It can be shot well from light weapons, and it is especially appreciated as a drive hunting cartridge in double rifles or double rifle drillings. 

The 9.3x74 R is the companion version of the 9.3x62, and they both were introduced at about the same time at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. The performance of the two cartridges is practically identical.

RWS centerfire rifle cartridge with Cone point-bullet

9,3x74 R

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
