Anyone having success with the .308 152Gr Shock Hammers?
I've been trying them in a 30Nosler that is already shooting the 181 Hammers very well. My finding is that they shoot better when loaded well off the rifling. My last test had them at .096" off for the best results.Anyone having success with the .308 152Gr Shock Hammers?
What types of velocity are you getting from the 143 HH in your 28? I currently shoot the 169 HH in my 28. It has been a fantastic bullet and so easy to get it to shoot.No better bullet out there. Been handloading for 35 years and tried all types and brands of bullets. Superb accuracy, easy load development, and reliable and outstanding terminal performance. pics are of typical groups with 124 gr HH in 6.5 CM and 143 gr HH in 28 Nosler
No. Copper bullets don’t have the BC that lead bullets have. Someone smarter than me can explain why, I just know they aren’t nearly as good in the BC department. However the terminal performance is really impressive and in some areas lead bullets aren’t allowed. There are others that just don’t want any lead in their game.How are the BC's on these? On par with ELDX or?????
BCs are not what’s claimed. Similar to Accubond LR when they first came out, 180 ELDm etc. actual bc is not what is stuck on the box.... kinda like how berger says you can shoot a 1:9 with the 195s... yeah you can if you wanna lose 5-15% if the BC.How are the BC's on these? On par with ELDX or?????
I haven’t yet, I had to use a mono on a bison hunt so I chose the Hammer. With little time to develop a load and get ready I never was able to work with it past 300. The suggested load from Hammer gave me 1/2 MOA so I left it and went. Since I just haven’t had time with school and work.what bc numbers are you getting with the 169? Have you shot it long?
