KKMC-hh is a precision event-generator for Z production and decay in hadronic collisions, which
applies amplitude-level resummation to both initial and final state photon radiation, including
perturbative residuals exact through order $\alpha^2L$, together with exact order $\alpha$ electroweak matrix element corrections. We present some comparisons to other programs and results showing the effect of multi-photon radiation for cuts motivated by a recent ATLAS W -mass analysis. We also show preliminary untuned comparisons of the electroweak corrections of KKMC-hh to those of HORACE, which includes order exact $\alpha$ EW corrections with resummed final-state photon radiation.
