6.5x47, 25” benchmark, lapua brass, CCI 450, 41.5 gr of H4350, 124 HH. Velocity is 2938 FPS. This load was previously what I used for the 130 Accubond. No pressure signs and I think I could go higher but shoots so good I don’t see the need to change it.

I think we can do exacy like the Absolute Hammer post, just on the Hammer Hunter (this) post.

I will keep the spreadsheet at the first of this post. Add your info and I will move it to the spreadsheet just like before.

Thanks.

Mr. GLTaylor, Would you prefer the data, load-by-load, grain-by-grain as we work up to pressure? (Like most of us did with the AH data.) Or just the load data for the one we settled upon? I have several range sheets in my file that included most of my work-up data, but don’t want to overwhelm the system. Thank you again for doing this!

OK, here is the Hammer Hunter Load Data I have.
Please review your loads. There is a bit of needed info missing

Thanks for your time and effort to put this all together. I see my post was missing some information. My barrel is 24", 10" twist and brass is Federal. I developed this load at 2500' and 70 degrees this past winter in S. AZ. I will be using the bullet in MT at 5500' and temperatures down to zero. It was -10 the opening day of elk season last year and no I didn't go out, I stayed at the cabin, keeping the wood stove filled! I'll post results when I shoot in MT this fall.

Since Hammers are easier/more straightforward to load for, finished loads are fine. Just be sure to specify brass, primer, bbl length, twist and any special notes - like FCD & #, nk tension, temp., groups, etc.
Hopefully everyone will reduce loads and work up in their rifle🤞
