I'm looking to buy a new driving hammer. Pricewise, I've narrowed it down to a Bellota 6oz or an NC 10oz. Any comments on comparisons between the two?

I'm partial to the smaller hammers, (I have a 6 oz Horsehead) but some people like a litlte more heft.
If you are not mail ordering and can actually hold them on your hand in a store, see how they feel. The feel of balance will differ for everyone. Also if you wring your nails, stick a nail through a shoe or in a vise at the store and be sure the hammer wrings well. Some don't, even in the same brand and style.

I agree with everything Patty said, plus I think it depends on the types of horses you shoe. If you shoe any draft horses, I think you're beating your head against a wall driving #9 regular heads with a 6 oz. hammer. You're also going overboard if you're plating 2 yr olds at the track or trainers with a 10 oz hammer driving #3 race nails. I personally shoe a lot of Warmbloods and bigger horses, I believe my hammer is a 10oz Jim Poor, that I've had forever, I've replaced the handle several times but I'm going to cry the day I have to use something else. I also keep a 12oz NC driving hammer in my box for tapping shoes back, cutting clinches and such. My Jim Poor is only used for driving nails. I don't want to break the handle again. If I were you I would probably go with something a little heavier just in case, but that's just my opinion. If you're torn, you could always try out some of the 8 oz hammers on the market.

I'm partial to the NC driving hammers. They just feel right. :) Also like the NC rounding hammers.

Here's the deal. I'm trying to keep it simple.

I'd go for the NC every time. Although my favourite is the JC.

Hey thanks for the feedback. I don't shoe any drafts, just light horses. I will have to mail order, so I don't have the luxury of trying one in hand. I thought the NC 10oz might be kind of in the middle, but just didn't like the thicker handle. I guess I could dress it down with a sander. Anyway, thanks for your responses.

If you have a D and B Supply close by they carry the NC hammers. If not try another feed store or farm store I find that the NC hammers is what they carry most.

I have an 12 oz NC and just took my rasp to the handle untill it fit my hand better.

Try the Mustad 7 or 9 oz. driving hammer. You will find them to be of the best balance and are the highest quality for the money
