    9.3x74R Ruger No.1-S & 250gr TTSX

    Results today with my 9.3x74R Ruger No.1-S / Leupold FX-II 4x33m and revised hunting load 250gr TTSX. Not bad for 22" barrel just under 2600 fps muzzle speed. Approaching 338 WM 250gr muzzle speed.

    Accuracy ok groups about 1" at 100 yards off bench. Nicely balanced with medium weight barrel.

    I like #1 rifles, but only own one in 280 Remington. You have a nice rifle there!

    Any good shooting Ruger No.1 is worth holding on to.

    9.3x74R loads with 285gr and 286gr bullets should blow past any .338 Win Mag heavy bullet load.

    I wanted one of them when I first noticed the chambering but couldn't justify another that close to the 375H&H Tropical I already have.
    I ended up building one on a Remington #5 rolling block receiver. A Green Mountain 338 #4 barrel was sent to Jes and rebored to 9.3mm . I turned it 1/2 round to reduce the weight some and cut to 32". Topped with an 18" Malcolm 6×. Fun and unusual.
    Good looking #1 and in an interesting little cartridge.

    It's been awhile since I've done picture.
    This is my 9.3×74r rolling block.

    SAAMI/ANSI Z299.4-2015 hasn't established maximum average pressure for 9.3x74R. However Euro CIP standard has:

    https://bobp.cip-bobp.org/en/tdcc_pu...idge_type_id=2



    Pressure probably held relatively low for use in break-action drillings commonly chambered in 9.3x74R. In a strong action Ruger No.1 enhanced performance possible. No problem to safely load 320gr at 2300+ fps.

    From the Speer #10 manual. It has data for SR4759 which I seem to have an abundance of.

    Plinking reduced load Blue Dot works not too bad.
