ramset powder actuated hammer

hi

its seems as if the harder i wack the ramset hammer, the further i can drive the nail.

am i crazy or what

i thought once the charge fires, it should make no difference how hard i hit the tool.

thanks

I would think that by hitting the striker harder you are reducing recoil and allowing the tool to apply more force to the nail.

You probably should use consistant force and then chose different charges to control the depth.
