Is my German 9 x 57 Mauser considered a medium or small bore? I've a beautiful Sauer and Sohn bolt action rifle and a case of Kynoch ammo I inherited from Dad.

I have to ask, why is that categorization important?

Your instincts were right DR. Charlie. Now tell us about your rifle!

This cartridge should be fine pork slayer and is very similar to 9.3x57 https://www.norma-ammunition.c...-57-232gr---20193092
I would not hesitate to use it on moderate distances for hunting moose.

I have a 9.3x57; perfect rifle to shoot hogs from a bow blind with iron sights Smiler

It was intended as a medium in the .358 catagory
and a fine one it is, Id opt for it over the .358, 345, 35 REm. and others for a brush country deer rifle I suppose.

That said, I don't really understand the term "brush country rifles", Ive seen many good bucks in the thickest of country that were 200 to 300 yards across a canyon or in a fire lane or whatever..But they are sure fun to hunt with love to hunt with my 30-30, 25-35 and 348, even for mule deer..even a 222 on ocassion..Id love to hunt with your 9x57 and I have with the 7x57 and 8x57, I would expect as much from a 9x57..

I guess what Im saying is just give me a gun and tell me go hunt in that pasture and Im good with it. tu2
