    I have a 270 wsm with 1-9twist barrel 26" . I was wonder what kinda speed people are getting with the 117gr and 126gr hammer hunters and what powder you are using? Will use it for hunting 0-500yards or so . From totes up to elk .

    I know the guys at Hammer Bullets have played with the 117 in the 270 WSM, I think they got up around 3400-3500 fps with them. I think they've got a thread going over on their forum. You may have to dig a little for it.
