Don “Ganyana” Heath has his last say on an angry elephant he had to put down using his 9.3×62 and a single Norma Mono solid.

The variety of game animals and settings makes this one of the most interesting cartridges ever produced.

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS -From the 9.3×62’s Centenary in 2005, the 9.3×62 Journal enjoyed unexpected interest. Since the target audience back then were South African hunters, it was first published in A4 magazine format, with a fair number of contributions written in the Afrikaans language. Self-published of course… who knew the 9.3×62 Mauser back then after all?
But readers wanted a book and the 2nd Edition in A5 was printed from 2007 – 2013. The fully revised 3rd Edition English version was underway, but due to many challenges, it took no less 9 years to complete. The result is a 9.3×62 Journal filled with contributions from Spain, Italy, USA, Australia and South Africa with more than 600 full colour pages…
Real life bullet tests, real life experiences, opinions, reports, images and what not, makes the 9.3×62 Journal unequalled in its genre.
