HD Custom Rifles & Ammunition, LLC
Brian and Steve have been working together for many years to create rifles and bullets that would provide them a better overall hunting experience.
In 2012 they formed HD Custom Rifles & Ammo in an effort to work in an industry they love, creating jobs that felt like play, and developing products that would benefit themselves as well as other hunting and shooting enthusiasts.
Initially they looked at creating superior rifles – rifles built using a custom barrel design coupled with high-performance components and put together by a well-known Montana gunsmith. Their first prototype, built in 2008, was a fun project and learning experience for both men; at a whopping 17 lbs, it is too heavy to be a realistic option for hunting, but they still have fun shooting it occasionally. After redesigning and several more custom builds, they realized that even the best-built rifle would not consistently meet their high standards of accuracy and performance without a better bullet.
The dream of bringing a custom rifle to market is not dead, but has been on the back burner over the past couple of years as they focused on developing that bullet.
Despite both Brian and Steve having full-time jobs and families, they committed themselves to developing a product that will perform consistently to their expectations.
The culmination of their efforts was realized in June of 2015 when they were granted a US PATENT number 29/529,124 for their bullet design. That product is available on the market as Hammer Bullets™.
