One road of the 150gr SST and he dropped in his tracks! The one picture is of the green light on the feeder and the moon.

    I really like mine. I was only able to afford an upper when Bill Wilson offered a special on another forum. I believe it was 25% off back then.

    Been loving this chambering for quite some time now. And I have been a big fan of the 6.8SPC. I actually own three of them.
    Would like to own a HAM'r. --- pruhdlr

    Both the 6.8 and the HAM’R work perfect for the hunting We do. The wife and I have hunted for years with the 6.8 with great results. I do like the availability of larger bullets with the HAM’R. 6.8 we use 115 and 120 grain and with the HAM’R I use 135 and 150 grain bullets. Both calibers are great!

    Wondering what the velocity difference is between a 6.8SPC and a HAMR shooting a Barnes (or other) 110gr bullet ?? --- pruhdlr
