300 Ham'r

After reading John Barnsness article in Handloader, getting the parts in to bring to my Gunsmith, who manufactures AR15 and AR10 Lowers. Getting 30-30 performance from 16" will be nice. Will complement the 450 Bushmaster and Grendel.

Have fun... It reportedly performs well on feral hogs, but after taking a look, I decided Bill's pet .30 doesn't offer me anything I don't already have covered.

Sherman, TX. When I lived in LA, I used to go up there with a neighbor in my late teen years. We'd stay at his Grandparents and slay the jackrabbits. Wish they had some hogs back then.

If you want some more info on the cartridge, from the horses mouth, so to speak...

You might want to take a look at ARP's Tac 30 (formerly called 30 HRT but thankfully changed the name)--formed from 6.8 spc brass and out-performs the 30 Ham'r according to ARP (I don't have a 30 Ham'r myself). It is a wildcat but I have one and did lots of work with it and it shoots very well. Forming the brass involves knocking the shoulder back a bit and trimming the case length so there is a bit of a "fiddle factor" but straight-forward once you have your dies set and a "dummy" round on hand as base reference. I use hornady's 30 herret die to reform the brass; I think there might have been a special run on tac 30 dies though I missed out (as I always do).

If I didn’t already have an AR in 7.62x39 I’d probably give this one a go.
