Re: hunting with a-max bullets
I'd trust the 105s at 500 yds better than I do at 50 yds. and 500 yds would be as far as I personally would go. For me hunting with this bullet in a 243 is like hunting elk with a 308, yes it will get the job done but shot selection is CRITICAL. I just don't think of the Amax as a bone crunching bullet, but it works wonders going through the boiler room.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
