Re: 208 AMAX for hunting??
I can't help you on the 208, but the 7mm 162 proved devastating on deer and antelope here in SD. My wife and I shot 2 antelope and 2 mule deer this past season and the furthest one went about 20 yds, two of the 4 dropped in their tracks. All but one was shot over 400 yds.
