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.
