The striker, signed from Leyton Orient in the summer, has had an injury-plagued first few months at Eastleigh but is finally off the mark for his new club.
McCallum had put the Spitfires 2-0 up before Bromley roared back to lead 3-2. McCallum scored again to equalise and complete his hat-trick before Louis Dennis looked to have won it for the visitors late on.
However, Sam Matthews scored at the death to give Richard Hill’s men a point following an eight-goal rollercoaster.
McCallum has had a tough time of it so far at the Silverlake Stadium but is hopeful that his first Eastleigh goals can spark an upturn for both himself and the club.
“It’s a big relief,” he told Eastleigh’s YouTube channel. “It had been eight or nine games and I haven’t scored or really had any chances.
“The chances seemed to fall to me (on Saturday) and I’ve always believed that if I do get chances, I will take them. Now I’ve got to crack on.
“We were frustrated because we were 2-0 up and we’ve got enough professionalism and experience in the changing room to see the game out.
“We made some mistakes and they went ahead 3-2 but we showed great character to grab the equaliser.”
