You can't.

The 9.3x57r360 (full name of what you have) is also called the British .360 2-1/4 express, also known as the .360 miniature express.

This website will make you dies: http://www.ch4d.com/

This site will sell you brass: http://www.buffaloarms.com/

Bullets can be purchased but you need to do a chamber cast and pass several slugs through the gun and get your measurements correct. Your gun's bore could be anything from .36" to .375+.

Incidentally, this will be a major financial and time based undertaking for you if it is a drilling or double rifle. If your "combination gun" is a Cape Gun, you really don't care about regulation and therefore it may be easier just to shove different loads in and see how they pattern.

Cases can be formed from 9.3x72R, or can be bought from Bertram and Horneber. Husquarna appears to have used real 9.3 mm barrels, so .364 - .366 bullets should be fine. But they need to be lead, or with a thin jacket only, not the modern heavy-jacketed bullets for 9.3x62 oder 74R. I have copies of a Scandinavian article with plenty of information including loading data which I can send you by email, and some own experience.
Please take note that case dimensions for the 9.3x57R/360 and for the .360 / 2 1/4 are a bit different, and dies for the English case may not work.

Hello Steinaug.
All of the above is good info.
Fuhrmann helped me out when I first picked up one and that info is pretty much on.
The only change that I made was that I wasn't sure of the chamber as it was a very old rifle, so I took 8x57r360 dies and expanded the neck to .366 after sizing.
This gave me a case that was sure to fit and I fireformed them.
Where does this leave you? Well, if you have a fired case, you can send it to CH4D and they can ream a set of dies if your chamber is off of standard.
Other option is that since this is a relatively low pressure round you can simply handload fired cases unsized, which is what I ended up doing - especially if you don't plan on firing it much.
I shoot a BP load with a paper patched .357 slug. very easy to put together and reasonably accurate (around 1" at 50).

Good shooting

Tom
