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 Twin-core-bullet

9,3x62

The twin-core projectile consists of two lead cores with different hardness and a Tombak jacket. The harder tail core has an additional tough Tombak jacket separating it from the softer tip core. The core weight ratio is 50:50. A tail groove at the rear end of the projectile reliably bonds the tail core with the external jacket. A second groove in the front section forms the sharp rim (impact location hair) and is also the specific breaking point for the front jacket of the projectile. This is an important point for the tearing away of the otherwise obstructive projectile flares. This design ensures a straight shot channel for the important exit hole.

Twin-core-bullet

Construction Twin core-bullet

  1. Harder tail-core for extreme penetration 
  2. Tombac-jacket 
  3. Softer tip-core for controlled fragmentation and high effectiveness 
  4. Sharp edge for sure indications on where the shot was placed on the animal 
  5. Inner Tombac-jacket 
  6. Tail constriction for a mass-stable residual body and a sure bullet exit 
  7. 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): 1.415 J
  2. Energy transfer on heavyweight game (at 15 cm): 2.169 J
  3. Total energy transfer: 3.245 J
