Husqvarna 9.3x57 on Moose

Husqvarna 9.3x57 on Moose

On the seventh day of our hunt we found a burn area. While waiting out a snow squall, we heard a cow start to bellow across the valley. The snow quit before long and a bull came out from our other side to go see about the cow. I caught up to him just in time as he neared the edge of the burn. The 270gr Speer going 2460fps hit him hard and the bull toppled before the recoil had settled down. He never even tried to get up. It is very surprising how well this cartridge works on game this size. This 9,3 certainly hits harder than it looks like it would and dropped him faster than my other bull went down with a 338-06! It took us 7 hours to get him the 30km back to camp. He is 58'' wide and was worth every second it took to find him. Thanks again for your help with finding a rifle; I hope to do business with you and your Dad again soon!
