You can figure on roughly about 2/3-3/4 of the weight being retained as you move out from 600-1,000yds with the Amax which is why it's one of the better all around bullets on the market for long range work.
The way the jacket is designed it opens easily but it gets steadily thicker as you move front to rear such that you get good expansion while retaining the bulk of the mass all the way through.
Generally I prefer the interlock or interbond under 600yds, but they have a whole lot more energy to work with at those ranges.
