Remmy factory loads I just now noticed...

Postby commander faschisto » Tue Jun 16, 2020 12:20 am

Big Green seems to have slipped in three new 450b loads while I wasn't looking; 250gr TTSX Hog Hammer; 250gr Hypersonic Copper TTSX; and UMC 260gr FMJ....color me surprised! I just hope their Quality Control is back online...

The "Hog Hammers" are long overdue. As for the Hypersonics, so that's sounds like marketing hype. It could be some ultra-lite bullet using a faster powder than usual to hustle it up above say 2500. Who knows with vaporware. Believe them when you see them.

I think the Hog Hammer and "Hypersonic" are the same loads in a different box...can you say "marketing b******t" ? 250gr Barnes TTSX BT

However, they seem to be hitting the shelves: https://vizardsgunsandammo.com/rem-hh-4 ... sx-20-200/ https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_inf ... /714022902

Haven't checked other places yet...

Ok,...so...I just got a few boxes of Remmy 450b Hog Hammer 250gr TTSX rounds today. That's the good news. Any of you who have been around the forum here for a while will remember a troubling situation we discovered a few years ago with the first run of Remmy green tips...case mouth profiles varied randomly from crimped to straight mouth to ever-so-slightly flared, usually within the same box of rounds. Well...my 20/400+ nearsighted microscope eyeballs have found that this first run of Hog Hammers have reduced the questionable crimps down to only one of the three possibilities. In the boxes I just received, they are all uniformly showing the ever-so-slightly flared case mouth profile. None show any evidence of the case mouth being crimped into the boolit. They look great, until you check closely. After waiting for the better part of ...what?...almost a decade to see this loading actually produced by Big Green, I'm feeling a tad deflated here...they seem to have duplicated the original problem all over again...maybe.

A trip to the range will prove the pudding, I suppose...

I've got some of the HST "Copper" version coming soon...I want to see if there's any actual difference, or just the usual marketing nonsense.
