Bud I'm not beating you up but take my advice call Steve and exchange the AH's for Hammer Hunters, Your never gonna be happy with the AH'sSo I ordered some absolute hammers for a couple calibers, I was looking at powders in the higher pressure ranges that weren’t compressed at max charge. Am I to expect to be able to hit max and not see pressure signs? I won’t be using bushing dies so no adjusting neck tension . And should I run with just under max coal? Sorry if these are dumb questions.
No data on 97s. Some on the 109s in Grendles on the load data spreadsheet (Post #2)I have been wanting to try the 97 grain ab hammers to gain some speed in my grendel i run a 100 griain eld at 2760 with benchmark i happy with that load but the claim that u can get 200x300 fps higher is a tempting thought.
3 times the money per bullet is also a bummer ,but for hunting it shouldnt break the bank.
if anyone has tried them in a grendel please post results
H1000 will be way to slowBeen following this thread since it started. I picked up a Christensen Mesa in 28 Nosler for a New Years present for myself and am just finishing up the break in process. It shoots the factory Hornaday Precision Hunters with the 162 ELD-x in a cloverleaf . Been dabbling with some 169 Hammer hunters that shoot well but like everyone else my powder selection is quite limited, all I really have for that weight of bullet is Retumbo. I ordered some of the 155 Absolute Hammers that should be here by the weekend hoping I could use some H1000 behind the lighter pill. Anyone try this combo and have a good starting load. I looked in the Nosler load data and they have a starting load for 150's @ 74.5 grains and maxes out @ 79.3. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.......................JR
