    Those 162gr A max's are great longrange deer slayers.

I giggle like a little girl when I watch one of my buddies shoot one over 500 and see the look on their face. He also told me it doesnt really seam fair.
    Dean, love the quote " giggle like a little girl". I'm glad to hear that another one bit the dirt for ya, and also, that you used a 162 A-Max. One of mine shoots them like a lazer, but I've been hesitant to try them on game. I have gotten mixed reports as to what they do on the terminal end. But, boy do they shoot!!!! And I've heard the phrase, man " I'm getting one of these , but ASAP" many times, especially at the range. But, in the final analalysis, the shot your buddy made was with your gun, and your load development. But Kudos on the trigger man too!!
    For future experiments, what was you load, and velocity, just curious. Take care Dean, and Happy Turkey Day.

    Well, crappy hunting year here. Few deer, and they are really out and running. A lot of posted land in the unit I got stuck in also. 600+ yard full run on whitetail seemed to be the norm. I'm cleaning the 7stw as I write this. My 300 win may get a chance next weekend as I shoot running critters rather well with it.
    More load developement with 140 grain and attemping to get serious accuracy with accubonds or sierra at 3400 fps and change will be on the agenda. If I can't get her (the rem)going my way, I'll convert a lh a-bolt to 7stw and start over. I really need to get the time of flght down more than I care about 1000 yard + accuracy for he running deer shooting I seem to always get into.
