Thank you sir. Its a sweet sweet shootin rig fo sho. Can't wait for deer season. When I shot that string that averaged 3915 I did'nt believe the magnetospeed. A fella at the far end of the range was using a Labradar. I asked if I could shoot past it once and he agreed. 3918 so I figure mine was'nt lying.

I know, it’s hard to believe the velocities you get with these bullets. I was talking with Bean this morning and we both agree that conventional thoughts and beliefs don’t hold up with Hammers. These are “outside the box” bullets.

Oh absolutely! I've shown my results to a couple of buddies and their jaws drop. I even showed one what my cleaning patches look like after 40 or so rounds, he could'nt believe there was no copper fouling at all. The speeds are unmatched, accuracy is outstanding, easy to develop, and what I saw that 98 gr pill do to a near 300 lb boar, its a whole different ballgame. Folks that don't shoot em don't understand or realize what they're missing. I'm in 100%

OK, folks. Steve at Hammer Bullets has been getting requests for load data on Hammer Hunter bullets.

There is an extensive spreadsheet for Absolute Hammer Load Data developed and shared by members on this Forum.

Data for Hammer Hunters is on the Hammertime Forum, but it has not been placed into a spreadsheet for easy reference.

In the next few days, I will be posting Hammer Hunter data in another spreadsheet on this Forum. After it is posted you will have info for both style bullets in basically one location.

Once the new spreadsheet is posted, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT LOAD DATA AND PROCESSES FOR LOADING HAMMERS AND ABSOLUTES IS VERY DIFFERENT!!!!!!

Before loading either Hammers or Absolutes, please read the information/guidance on the Hammer Bullets webpage!

Stay tuned for further developments.

I will be posting up:
300Wm - 196HH
300WM - 181HH
300WSM - 166HH
300WSM - 180HH
.270WIn - 117HH
.243Win - 80HH

I just need to organize the load data so it is nice and concise for posting. Should be up by mid-week.
