SS

I think that its probably the best commercial bullet to expand. I've got one example of some 83 grain flat base with a good hollow point that would probably work well too. But they are custom.

BTW the 75 amax and 80 smk are about the same with ballistics. While the 80 vlds are just a bit better.

One more FYI. If I recall right you want to make sure each 75 amax is under 1.105 in OAL. If I recall it was those that were longer in oal that really sucked in the accuracy dept. And I'd bet that those were not totally formed either. Don't damage the tip or loose the tip or you are toast. Usually causes about 22 inch drop at 600 with a lost tip.

In response to the original question, if the conventional range limit is 350-450, then when tactically applied you could probably add 100-150 yds. at least-- especially the
-250.
