Thank you Bobcape. This is exactly what I was trying to convey to the forum members. Bad communication is using code words or user names instead of using their company names. This is very bad advertising and bad communications. Many members are gunsmiths, rifle assemblers, and salesmen, but they don't use their company names so we ALL know who and what they are. Good writing communication requires the writer to identify who he is via a legal signature and not a made up, jiberish user name.

With the 124 Hammers, I have had great success with RL16. So, the 4350 burn rate works well. If you have any BL-C(2), it is right there with Varget, so that’s another option.
I think 4166 will work really well with the 110gr Hunters.
I have about five pounds of RL16, I can definitely use it as a test bed as well. So what did you use for starting out and what you end up settling on for the 124 HH in a 6.5 Creed?

You’ve got to be kidding me. You’re hell bent on bad mouthing a great company or anyone that doesn’t meet your standards. Just move on please. Your handle explains it all.

I mean no offense but you are totally off base, No one is speaking code so please do yourself and everyone else a favor and get over it and move along as you seem to know nothing about what is going on with Hammer Bullets and Just an FYI Steve is one of the finest Gentleman you will ever come across and it will serve you well not to bump your gums over something and or someone you don't know

I'm not bad mouthing anyone. Just pointing out, as Bobcape did, that you guys are not being clear and are leaving the readers wondering what you are talking about. If constructive criticism offends you, that's sad.

Here’s where I ended up.

My data was virtually identical in my creed. Had to use a drop tube.

By the way @JustMe2, there is another thread devoted to just the Absolute Hammers. It is somewhere over a 100 pages now. The second thread has a spreadsheet that members have contributed to over the last 2 years. There is no Hunter data posted for safety and consistency reasons. Loads for the Hunters are just too easy to develop using traditional data for cup and core or Barnes bullets. You might read Absolute Hammer Load Data. There is a wealth of info there. Many you are chastising have contributed heavily.

“How hard is it to call the manufacturer for load data” you stated on one of your posts. How hard is it for you to do a web search, do some research on your own, as opposed to it be being spoon fed to you?

Shouldn't have to do a web search if people would write properly and not be so defensive. You people are whiners.
