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.
