Recently acquired a pretty little 9.3x74R in a chapuis double and am wondering from you bear folks if it would be effective on grizzlies etc (i know it is on hogs, deer, elk, and black bear). They've been used to kill bull elephants several times in the past, although considered rather under powered fo DG by today's standards. However, in certain African countries they are often listed along with the 375 H&H as minimum cal required on DG. I generally shoot 286 grained bullets travelling at speeds of roughly 2400 fps...essentially, it's an underpowered 375. Your thoughts... Oh yeah, the 9.3X62 is the bolt action version of the 9.3X74r (the R stands for rimmed). They are nearly ballistic twins.
