Showing some love for the Tac 30 with a huge boy there. Good job. I wish I could stand the heat to get after them again.
Thanks Chopper -
Truth is - this boar was shot May 22nd... Much cooler then.
Current temp here according to my Acu Rite weather station is 111 degrees.
I can't stand chasing hogs in this kind of heat either !

@Homebrewer, Good Load'n and Good hunt'n!👍
I got a question though, has anyone tried the 300 Ham'r 97gr-150gr projectiles out of the Tac30 Cartridge, I understand the 300 Ham'r projectiles are shorter and Stubbier, or are most of the bullets the 300 Ham'r uses the same as the bullets the Tac30 uses?
-And Thanks.
My go to bullet in my 30 Herrett / Tac30 rifles, is the Cavity Back 125gr MKZ.
I have also loaded and hunted with 125gr Nosler Ballistic Tip, and 130gr MK319's.
-
Both rounds fire .308 bullets, however the 30 Herrett has more horsepower, due to greater case capacity over 300 Ham'r.
I did test load 130gr Speer Hot Core in the Herrett at 2720+ fps. The Speer Hot Core is likely the optimum round for the Ham'r , and last I read, Wilson Combat quoted velocity at 2450-2500 fps with the Ham'r - considerably less than achieved with the 30 Herrett / Tac30.
-
There are other shooters on this forum that run the Ham'r with good results on hogs.
@OneK and @djones could likely assist with load data.

Hope this helps.

Will either need to find a 30 Herrett/Tac30 that someone is willing to sell, or purchase a new reamer from Pacific Tool and have a blank custom chambered... more expense.
