A beautiful sight
Now, I've loaded almost 60 total rounds of 9.3x62mm, and I was shocked to see that I'm more than halfway through my pound of Big Game. I'm used to loading mild .38 Special and .44 Special, with about 4-4.5gr of powder per cartridge. I've been on the same pound of 700x for a year now, and I'm just barely putting a dent into it. But when you're using almost 60 grains per cartridge, you burn through a pound of powder (7000 grains) in fairly short order. Time to find a big jug!
