The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Institute, Inc. (SAAMI), is the organization at the forefront of promoting firearm safety by creating standards that ensure safety, reliability and interchangeability of firearms, ammunition and components.
The .30 caliber 300 HAM'R cartridge is designed to optimize performance of 95gr-150gr bullets and to function in the AR15 platform. Muzzle velocities range from 2280fps to 2770fps out of a 16-inch barrel depending on bullet weight. The cartridge operates at a maximum average pressure of 57,500psi.
Designed for self-defense, law enforcement and hunting applications, the terminal performance of the cartridge is comparable to the legendary .30-30 Winchester. However, the 300 HAM’R has a substantially flatter trajectory due to the higher ballistic coefficient of the bullets used.
Wilson Combat is now offering 300 HAM’R cartridges loaded with the 110-grain solid copper Barnes Tipped Triple-Shock X bullet and the Wilson Combat/Speer 150 grain HAM’R bonded bullet.
The Barnes Tipped Triple Shock is noted for accurate deep penetration on medium-large game. At 2600 feet per second and approximately 1651 foot-pounds of energy, it is a devastating choice for hunting or defense.
The all-new HAM’R BONDED load uses a 150-grain Wilson Combat/Speer collaboration bonded bullet that is the heaviest available for the 300 HAM’R. At 2300fps and 1762 foot-pounds of energy, the HAM’R BONDED load is the heaviest 300 HAM’R load available and is ideal for tactical or big-game hunting use.
To further enhance reliability and extraction when your rifle is heavily fouled or when shooting suppressed, the HAM’R BONDED is also available loaded in premium nickel-plated cases.
