Re: Amax verses Berger

One more thing I forgot to mention. We all shot factory remington 700's. And that little 90 with a BC like a brick shot groups at 200 yards to cover with a nickle....it was seriously an amazing annomely. Nothing about it should have shot well, but it was a 1 holer at 100 yards.

    I may load some of those 90s in the 7-30 for my daughter to shoot.

    In the .270 it was a 90. In 7mm it's a 100 gr sierra varminter. I shot that load when i was 10 years old with no pain. It kicks like a .243. yours would be the 100 gr sierra varminter. Midway has them right now for $22 per 100. She would do well with that weight, and it will definately kill a deer. Plus she will be a better shot not worrying about recoil.

    I know this post is a bit old, but this photo illustrates the damage done by my 7 WSM using the 162 A-Max, 3020 pfs. The goat was shot head on at 134 yards or so. He was hit on the lower breast bone.
