On a simpler note, just a few thoughts:;)
The Absolute Hammer seems like such a simple concept--reduced bearing surfaces causes lower pressure which enables one to use faster powder to get a substantial velocity gain.....so why didn't the teams of engineers at the major ammo and bullet...
What you are seeing is water vapor in the air being heated and compressed by the passage of the bullet...kind of like miniature clouds or the white trails you see when a jet airplane is at high altitudes....they call that a contrail, or condensation trail.

I just returned back from Zimbabwe where I used my handloaded 175gr ABLR's for my 7mm Rem Mag. MV is 2,850fps.
I shot 7 Baboons but all of the bullets fully penetrated the animals. All dropped to the shot.

That’s how I figure it too. Steve put time into it as well, and again, with long-range facilities and expertise that I don’t have
If I buy loaded rounds from Steve they come out to around 5 bucks a round.
This is my main hunting rifle so I am not going to put thousands of rounds though it plus...
