i weigh 300 pounds will this bike take the punishment ill give it?
As with all bike manufacturers Rocky has to balance strength and weight. Being 300lbs, and willing to dish out "punishment" I can't guarantee that a XC rig is going to be the best choice. I have seen plenty of XC rides break under aggressive 200-250lbs users. While Rockys are know for their strength any frame overstressed will eventually fail. That said, if you're going to ride XC trails and are a smooth rider, the steel frame and hand built wheels of the Hammer will support you fine, but don't expect it to handle excessive abuse.
i quit gears and 26" wheels 2 years ago and haven't looked back. i bought this bike last year and love it. still tweaking its set up now and then but it rides great and climbs even better. it is a bit expensive but rocky mountain builds a tremendous bike (i own 2 now)and uses quality race face components. its bomb proof but still light enough to throw around in the turns. the wtb tires a great but practically impossible to get on and off the rim when encountering the occasional flat. this is the 29 ss to go with.
Rigid Hammer 29er
I changed my hammer up a bit:
fork: white bros. super rigid (carbon)
grips: ergo w/ bar ends
like a big boy bmx
i had a 2004 hammer (26" version) with gears. probably put close to 5000 trail miles on it. awesome bike. ride it like a big BMX bike. fun to jump and handles great. i didnt think it was much of a climber but 725 steel rides so nice you forget on the way down. the race face components are reliable and sturdy. i have a reba and once i got it dialed, i like it better than my white bros. this is a sick bike. rocky mountain made the hammer simple and strong. its not flashy (except for that weird baby blue color - mine was black thank god) but it was one of my favorite bikes ever. not every ride needs a foot of travel and hundred gears. remember hucking your pk ripper over the jump you built in the front yard? its like that but now i am 40.

Anyone know why RM went with Reynolds 725 over Reynolds 853?
725 is a tad more flexible so it gives you a little flex for comfort. 853 is super stiff and a little less comfortable. Plus I believe 853 tubing would have increased the price pretty significantly.

I can't tell from looking, does this have an EBB for chain tensioning? (Note: just found the bottom bracket in the tech specs in the "frame material"...stupid me, I looked in the "bottom bracket" section.
As per the tech specs: "Reynolds 725 cromo w/ eccentric BB and Rear der. hanger" ... and yes, you can see the EBB in the blue bottom bracket pic.
