anybody run the 140 AH in a 7SAUM? I've been running 150gn e-tips with 62.0gn H4831SC out of my 22" 8.5 twist, they've been decent but looking to switch things up. I've got some RL16, RL17 and H4350, hoping one of these will do the trick.
For what it's worth, I'm running 61.5 gr. of H100V in my 280AI with the 140 AH in a Savage AXIS II with a 22" 1:8 barrel. Also using 57.5 gr. with the 155 AH. Just shot a decent 5X4 mule deer in Montana this past week that literally went "bang-flop", DRT with the 155s. Never took a step. Did the same with a cow elk from my 300WM using 179 AH over 76 gr. H100V. Both "one-shot, no step" kills. Gotta love Hammer bullets.

Congrats on a successful hunt! How fast is your 300 pushing that 179AH?

Our AH’s showed up yesterday evening, can’t wait to work up some loads.
Prepping a bunch of Lake City brass for the 25-06
Congrats on your Montana hunt !
Thank you, WYOHTF. Have fun working up AH loads for your 25-06. Remember to error on the side of caution because pressures with AHs can go from "good" to "too much" in less than half of a grain.
