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 Uni Classic-bullet

Bullet UNI Classic RWS
9,3x74 R

Following on from the ID Classic, the UNI Classic was developed especially for heavy cloven game up to big game. This version reaches into the front softer part with its tip. This means that the projectile mushrooms less but the penetration force is.
