my 1st animal with a Hammer bullet was a medium buck Antelope this year Year 2022 Sept.16 TH. in Wyoming with my long range 257 Weatherby mag. 7 1/2 twist Brux barrel at a measured distance after the shot 450 yards . i used a 103 gr. Hammer hunter bullet went right thru the animal so no bullet recovery but a nice type small hole going in and looked like a mushroom type exit hole kinda. my rifle shoots on the average 3680 FPS with this 25 caliber bullet and with a zero of 200 yards and at 450 yards its about 13 -14 inches low i had to use Kentucky windage a little , my range finder did not work. my next use hopefully will be in Minnesota`s whitetail deer season son and myself will both be using our Ruger #1`s 257 Weatherby mags with this same great bullet 103 gr. Hammer bullet at the same speed too. good luck this fall with a safe season,Pete53

I'm a Hammer Bullet fan. I sent photos of what a 178 Hammer out of my Pre-64 .358 Win FWT did to a WT doe. I got a nice reply from one of the owner/founders, Steve Davis. So, they have great customer awareness and response. Good bullets, good guys.

This Sunday opener for Antelope....... either a 257 Bee with 90 gr Hammer, or a new 6mm ARC with 101 Hammer.

Still up in the air.
