    My pet M2 Ball clone load:

    Hornady 150gr FMJBT
    46.5gr IMR 4064
    Misc cases full-length resized
    Fed 210 primer
    3.185" COAL

    Pushes that 150gr pill right about 2700fps, and my particular M1 shoots it about 3.5MOA with my shitty right eye.

    My 9.3x62mm 'cheap' practice load:

    Prvi Partizan 285gr JSP
    59.5gr Big Game
    Priv cases (neck sized after firing)
    WLRM primers

    3.300" COAL
    No crimp

    Shoots a legit 1MOA out of my Ruger African. I used this load for my pre-safari practice sessions and the local safari rifle matches.
    Note that I have no idea if the pressure is suitable for older small-ring Mauser designs; this is purely for modern Rugers.

    Just out of curiosity, how does it compare to H335? That's been my go to for the 55 FMJ's since I started playing around with the .223/5.56. Thanks.
