Re: AMAX for hunting?
I agree 100% with KIWI3006
For what it is worth, Im in the throws of building a 284 WIN for shots out to 5-600 yrds,soley for our smallish light skinned game goats,fellow, sika.
I will be shooting either the 162 AMax or 168 Berger around 2900 fps, for shots past 300 depending on which one it likes and if I can get AMaxes,under 300 will be the Accubond no question, depending on game,Feral goats will get anything I can lay my hands on .
I shot two good sized goats a few weeks ago with my 6.5-284 140gr AMax MV 2920 at 455 yrds, both shoulder shots both pass throughs one took two steps and died, the other just dropped on impact,a fantastic result.
AMaxes do kill and do it well, just not at close ranges. BUT this is a Long Range Hunting forum after all
