    Which Hammer bullet for 280ai 140 Absolute Hammer or 143 Hammer Hunter

    Hammer bullets really like more neck tension, that’s why the Lee FCD works really well with them. Read ButterBean’s thread on why he crimps and uses the FCD. We are finding that magnum primers don’t always need to be used, especially when you get into some of the smaller cartridges. I recently...

    Which Hammer bullet for 280ai 140 Absolute Hammer or 143 Hammer Hunter

    I run them both in my 1:9 twist 280 AI RL23 with the 143 HH at 3250 fps HV100 with the 140 AH at 3353 fps Had to dial back a hot load over 3400 with the 140 AH, so no issues with the load now. Honestly, both will do what you need. The Hunter line of bullets is more predictable and follows...

    Absolute Hammer load data

    I’ll be anxiously waiting on your results. I got 3024 fps with the 162 gr Absolute in my 30-06, so I curious to see if you can get near to 3300 fps with the 151.

    What cartridge/bullet for hog hunting?

    They are a scourge and we can't put a dent into their population. They reproduce approximately every 3.5 months. They cause a tremendous amount of damage

    Absolute Hammer load data

    Why are you liking the 123's over the 124's? Increase in velocity?? Just curious and I know how many hogs you slay per year, so I'm wondering if you're seeing a difference in performance. I switched to them in my Creed, too. I'm getting about 100 fps more out of the 123's than I did with the...

    What cartridge/bullet for hog hunting?

    If you're itching to get another rig, a 450 Bushmaster is one hell of a hog round, too. Get it on an AR15 platform so you can change out uppers to a different cartridge if you want at a later date.

    What cartridge/bullet for hog hunting?

    Another vote for the 6.5 Grendel on an AR15 platform. I live in San Antonio and night hunt hogs with a Grendel and thermal setup. It is a deadly combo. Your 6.5 Creed or larger will do just fine

    I hear ya on that one!!!! I’m a velocity whore, but have learned to dial it back a little now that components are so hard to get these days. I never really pushed to see what top end was since it shot so well Congrats, again. Look forward to a report come hunting season.

    That’s awesome!!! You’re getting more velocity with these compared to my 7 STW, but accuracy is the same. Your load is going to be absolutely devastating on anything you shoot with it.
