I would lean towards the 105gr A-max. I have taken good many hogs with the A-maxs and they do a great job.

VH. Can't tell if you are serious or not, but if you are you need to try them. Hit some deer with SMK's or A-Max and you will change your mind.

Re: 105 AMax or 107 SMK on deer

Without a doubt, hunting big game with the Sierra MK bullet has been the most pondered, discussed, digested, regergitated and debated topic on this board. It barely takes the mention of the SMK to get someone all heated up.
YES, I was kidding.
As for my personal experience with the SMK on big game. I shot one large PA whitetail with a SMK bullet from my Weathery 7mm mag rifle. Although I did not perform an autopsy, the deer had a sizable hole blasted out the far side of its chest and expired quickly. I considered that shot to be in the X ring.
