The 9.3x64mm round was designed in 1927 by German gun maker Wilhelm Brenneke. It features a rimless, bottlenecked casing with an overall length designed to be able to chamber in professionally adapted military surplus and sporterised Mauser 98 rifles which were widely available at the time. The 9.3x64mm round maximised power with a muzzle energy of around 5.9J or about 3000 feet per second with a 225 grain bullet head. The cartridge was designed with big game hunting in Europe and Africa in mind. Performance was similar to the iconic .375 Holland and Holland round, but it was physically smaller and used less powder to achieve these results, making the 9.3x64mm Brenneke one of his most successful cartridge designs; even more impressive that the cartridge was designed from start to finish and not adapted from an existing cartridge. In 2009, the Russian military developed a semi-armour piercing 9SN cartridge for the Brenneke SVDK variant of the Dragunov sniper rifle. The Russians also produced these as hunting cartridges commercially. These rounds are soft point tipped variants using Russian steel cases. Price is for one round only. Rounds must ship with courier or Hermes.
The size of the round compared to a coin.
