Who is hunting with the A-Max?
I began using the moly 178 in my .300WSM last season after seeing the effect of the 7mm 162 gr on whitetails. I have not seen one deer take a single step after impact. Next deer season will be the first I have began with the bullet I used the previous season since my rifle was built 5 seasons ago. I only plan to change bullets should Hornady offer a 188 gr version.
The A-Max is a very soft bullet but father and son hunters who live a few miles north of me used 178 on an elk hunt in Colorado last season, each taking a bull and each with only one shot, these straight through the ribs to the lungs.
I am having a 6mm built for my wife to use tgt shooting to 1000 yds and intend on working with the 105 A-Max. My nephew already stated he might want to try it on whitetails and my intent is to stay with the same bullet, unless you all here feel the .243" A-Max should not be depended upon.
Rapid fire is the crutch of an incompetent marksman. ONE SHOT, ONE KILL
