My problem is why wreck a nice quail or grouse hunt by shooting a deer or elk. Then the work begins and the hunt is over.
My drilling is a Krieghoff 16x16x 8x57IR
I use her for doves, skeet/trap, and fun.
I do find the side safety a challenge for quick shooting.
The 9.3x74R is a potent round capable of taking pigs, deer and elk when close enough for accurate bullet placement.
Traditional 9.3x74R ballistics call for a 286 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of 2360 fps with 3538 ft. lbs. of muzzle energy. That is the load for which most doubles and drillings are regulated. It puts the 9.3x74 a little above the .35 Whelen and about equal to the .375 H&H Flanged Magnum in power. http://www.chuckhawks.com/hornady_9-3x74R.htm
