Re: A-Max in 22-250 - hunting Roedeer
I dont think the A-Max qualifies as a good hunting bullet in 22-250 either. I would like a bullet that penetrates trough the body of an Roedeer. Compared with the 22 LR shot at point blank, I´m quite convinced that the A-Max will penetrate a roedeer, no matter what the newspaper penetration measures. I´ve also been trying the thinner jacket V-Max at 3-4 mm steel with a board of wood behind. Totally penetrates the steel and smashes the wood big time. So A-Max and a roedeers thin shoulder or ribs will not be a problem. But if I hit heavy bone like the knockles, or shoots frontshot or from other angel than clean broadside, I would have a problem. Clean broadside shots will indeed bring home the bacon, but the damage to the meat will be pretty bad.
So the bullet will be used, if I can not find another better and more solid bullet that matches the accuracy I want. Still searching.... I will like to find a bullet in 50 grs, matching the trajectory to the V-Max/A-Max load as close as possible. Any suggestions?
