Depends on what you want to shoot with it.

250gr SNRN in Woodleigh is all you would need Chris.
Measure it, when it’s on the deck

They shoot really well out of my 9.3X62's but I haven't shot any game with them. I prefer the 250 Nosler Accubond because it is more accurate, shoots flatter, and retains more energy down range. But I don't think it would really matter the TTSX would also kill anything that walks the earth and is very accurate.

I use the 250gr TTSX in my 9.3x62. They work great. I shot a moose and a black bear a couple of weeks ago with them.

Same as Bob - they shot very well out of my 9.3 but I didn't end up using them on any game because I went to another projectile. I have also found them to be an accurate round in the 308.

Drills piggies like butter. Good blood trail.
But, they just don't die as fast as I would want them to. So, this season I'm trying Lapua Mega.
All for one and 9.3 for all
