A bit slow getting this done this month, but we decided to make the May bullet of the month the .243(6mm) 88g Hammer Hunter the bullet of the month for May. This is a great choice for the 243 caliber cartridges that have a barrel twist of 1-8" or faster. We have loaded this bullet in my Ruger American 6mm Creed and a custom 6 Creed. Both rifles are short 22" barrels and with h4350 were able to run nicely at a bit over 3300 fsp. I used this combo last year to take a nice big cow elk at about 300y. Bullet performed very well.
Recommended twist rate is 1-8" or faster Bullet length is 1.18 Nose length is .7293" Bullet weight is 88g Recommended use: Big game hunting G7-BC=.212 estimated
