With that 10 twist the heavier bullets should shoot very well for you.
Keep in mind though that while the A Max is a great target/varmint bullet Hornady expressly states it's not intended as a hunting bullet.
It has a very thin Jacket and shells out instantly if it hits anything hard.
It will certainly kill, but it will also make a hell of a mess on the way out if it does pass through.
The Interlock and Interbond are much better choices for hunting bullets.
