The 181g Hammer Hunter is a longer more aggressive design that needs more twist and can be difficult to fit in some short factory magazines.I have to admit, I'm trying to figure out how, or why the HHT would end up with a LOWER bc than the HH in comparable weights.
181 gr HH = G7-BC=.272 calculated from shot drops
182 gr HHT = g7-bc= .261 estimated
OK, let's try a different 30 cal comparison then.The 181g Hammer Hunter is a longer more aggressive design that needs more twist and can be difficult to fit in some short factory magazines.
I'm guessing no one can shoot the difference of .008 g7-bc at any distance. So far, we see less increase in bc from a tip the larger the caliber gets. We will see but my guess is 30 cal is the break point of seeing the tip influence bc in any significant amount.OK, let's try a different 30 cal comparison then.
199g HH Length = 1.625" Weight = 197g G7-BC = .299 (from shot drops) Min twist 1-9.25
203g HHT Length = 1.710" Weight = 203g G7-BC = .291 (estimated) Min twist 1-9
Even when the HHT is longer, weighs more, and requires a faster twist, the estimated BC is falling short of the HH. Where's the gain? What's the HHT going to do that the HH doesn't already do?
