Buck I also ordered some of the hammer bullets to try out in my 06 as well . I will try some 4350 and 4831 sc powders with them as well as varying seating depths . Did you find the need to use a jump or near the lands for the best performance in your case ?
Buck , thank you I go by Dave so you can call me that there are several names I have been called but Dave works for me . It is all good info that you shared on these bullets . I looked at his site and it has a rate of twist recommendation for each bullet as you said . I'm glad to hear about the seating depth as I have had issues with some bullets liking to be seated out near the lands thus loading from the magazine became a problem . I like the looks of them and the reduced bearing surface , lowered drag in the rifling , they look to be very well designed to reduce the drag in flight as well . Do you seal your loaded ammo after you crimp it to keep it from loosing or drawing moisture . I do that for mine just me , picked that up from military ammo . I saw a friend of mine have some older ammo that failed to fire it wasn't sealed and he had been carrying it in his carry pistol . Had to give him a hard time about just carrying a rock or big stick instead . Keep it changed out and fresh if you are putting your life or the hunt of a life time on it working properly is what I like . Thank You again for the info . Dave
