Re: 6.5 mm Creedmoor 120 amax

Got a chance at an Arkansas whitetail this morning. 283 ranged yards with the 6.5 creedmoor and the 120 Amax. 1 well placed shot to the neck = DRT. So far so good with the Amax.

    Dude, I can shoot a whitetail @ 300 yards with a .17 Rem Fireball in the base of the skull and it will drop DRT......Neck shots don't say much for bullet quality at all. Any sharp object stuffed inbetween the vertebrae can clip the spinal cord and will work perfectly.

    That is a nice buck, though.

    Dude I didn't say it was the best bullet ever. I simply said so far so good. I plan to do more testing with the Amax. Don't worry I will let you know how it goes.

What range were the coyotes at?
    Anywhere from 50-100 yards. I shot 5 dogs with that load and worked great on them. I had complete pass throughs but the exit hole was usually the size of a softball. Which tells me there wasnt much left of the bullet.

    Update. So far 3 dead deer with the 120 amax from a 6.5 creed. 2 neck shot = equals DRT obviously. Took a 500yard+ shot at a doe yesterday. Entry right behind the shoulder and exited through the offside shoulder. Deer went 20 yards and piled. At this point I couldn't be happier with the Amax.
