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

    I reviewed all the data I could find for 280ai and 7saum. I chose to load the 140AH, the regular Hammer's made sense if I was regularly hunting at 500yards plus, but the rifle I built was specifically for 400 yards and under, so the AH was the easy choice. New brass arrives next week and should...

    Whats the advantage of Hammer rounds ?

    I have the 140 Absolute Hammers sitting on my reloading bench to be tested in my 7SAUM. I'd expect RL26 and H1000 would be way too slow. I'll be trying H100v, VV550, VV540 and possibly Varget

    Whats the advantage of Hammer rounds ?

    Haven't seen this mentioned here, but probably my favourite aspect of the Hammer's is their consistent on game performance. It doesn't seem to matter if the bullet impacts at 3500fps or 1800fps, hits a shoulder bone, spine or soft tissue, the performance is just super consistent. I don't think...

    Sherman Wildcat Reloading Data is Here!!!

    Depends on the purpose of your rifle and distance being shot at. I built my 7saum for mountain hunts, so don't expect many shots beyond 400 yards. So I chose 140grain copper bullets. After running the numbers for the Saum, the 160 class bullets didn't start making sense to me until 500-600+...

    McMillan Lead Time

    I was quoted 6 months. The person I spoke to suggested I check out their pre-made flat stocks. I found one that was close enough to the stock I'd planned to order, they inlet it for the action of my choice and it was in my hands within 2 weeks.

    Tried that awhile ago. But I haven't heard back yet. I'll try to be more patient.

    My 338 Sherman Shortmag

    What sort of velocity have you seen from the 240 Bulldozer?

    My 338 Sherman Shortmag

    What distances are you expecting to take animals at? I personally build my 338ss for 700yards max and I know that sub 500 yards is more likely 95% of the time, for where I'm packing this rifle. So I'll take the higher velocity of the lighter mono's, vs the high BC, but slower velocity of the...
