The case of that 9.3 is about the size of a decent cigar! It's pretty popular in Germany with the pig hunters, puts 'em down quickly.Truly stepping into African chamberings there, and I'm with you on lusting after a double in it too. I've had a crush on the Valmet 412 for a long time. It's a little different than your usual SxS-type, is comparatively inexpensive, and is still a quality rig as well.
My dad has a friend from Great Britain (I fail to see anything great about it but that's beside the point) that has an old custom made double rifle chambered for .700 Nitro Express.I give my left nut to own a rifle like that. I did have the pleasure of shooting it once. Two rounds out of that is definitely "The pause that refreshes." I was black and blue from my neck to the bottom of my ribcage on my left side for 2 months after I shot it.The old boy charged me $50 per round to fire it and told me if I dropped it he would beat me to death with it. I gave him his $100 and his rifle back in one piece. It was a beauty.My poor old dad fired one round out of it and dislocated his shoulder.I'll stick to my Remington 700 chambered in .458 Lott. If I had a double like the one above, I'd be afraid to take it anywhere.I do love a gun that packs a good punch. I can go 20 rounds with the .458 Lott with no problem. I'm not so sure I'd get that far with the .700 Nitro but I'd love to try.Molon Labe,:-)Joe
