    Lever Hammer

    A little ways down my reloading list to try, but I did purchase a box of these Hammers to develop a load in the future for my 1980 Marlin 336 Texan (barrel is 18.5"). Very nice looking Marlin you own there, @wilkup. I'm looking forward to reading how this bullet works for you this season. Good...

    Just got back from South Africa

    Everyone deserves (needs to go) and hunt Africa at least once. By day three of my trip earlier this year, I knew I would be going back.

    PRVI Partizian brass opinions...

    Just bought a nice deal of it from a member here for a great price, all new, for a yet to be received Sako 85 in .300 Win Mag. Had a cousin give me about 80+ once fired from factory cases, so I feel I will be in good shape. Any new available brass seems to have really gone up in price (example...

    Hammer Bullet choices for 6.5x55 Swede in Ruger No. 1 and Sauer 100 XT

    Well, received a quick answer from Steve, his recommendation for using in both rifles is the 85 grain Hammer Hunter, should be able to hit over 3,400 fps out of the Sauer rifle and have good velocity to 400+ yards. Really looking forward to trying these. Thanks everyone for your replies.

    Hammer Bullet choices for 6.5x55 Swede in Ruger No. 1 and Sauer 100 XT

    Thank you. I'll definitely contact Steve. I'm not expecting much response on the Sauer rifle as I don't think it really established a strong presence here in the US, prior to the mess we're in with on availability of our hobby stuff, but had good reviews. With factory ammo of a good variety...

    Hammer Bullet choices for 6.5x55 Swede in Ruger No. 1 and Sauer 100 XT

    I've looked at that bullet, good reviews but thought I was close on barrel twist rate, at least for the Sauer. Honestly I would like to have one bullet pick between the two rifles (should have added that) and try to have a load that works for both. I have a good stash of Geco 156 gr SP factory...
