I have shot lots of game from small deer and varmints up to red stag and wapiti (elk) with this bullet and it is a superb longrange bullet out of the medium 7mm's from the 7mm SAUM up to the STW. For the RUMs and bigger 7mm's the 180gn Berger is better as these cases have enough capacity to drive this higher BC bullet fast enough. The 162 A-Max works on Elk sized game so long as you don't use it closer than 300 - 400 yards. The 160 AB is better for ranges from up close to 500 yards, but if there's a bit of wind and the range is long, the A-Max comes into its own with its better BC. Works out between .635 to .660 out of the many barrels I've used them in. This bullet shoots in every gun I've tried it in. Even some fussy guns that only shoot the A-Max. It is the long range bullet for the short mags in my opinion.
