105 gr A-max in a .243

Has any one used this bullet in this caliber for deer and if so what were the results?
Thanks in advance
Chris

Have shot deer out to 500 yards with the 105 gr A-max in my .243 AI with great results.

mbianchini, have you by any chance shot any deer inside 100yds? I'm curious if this bullet will hold together at near 3000-3100 fps.
Thanks
Chris

Yes:
the bullets don't hold up at short ranges on deer.
