.243Win + A-Max

Friends, i am planning my hunt for roe´s and roe-bucks for this fall.
My HOWA (Supreme Varminter Nutmeg, Timney trigger, 2,5-15x50 scope) in .243W is ready for the hunt.
The question: is someone using Hornady A-Max 105grs. for roe-bucks for ranges over 300+ yards? Some tips or experiences? Is this bullet suitable for this purpose? Our roe-buckes are about 45-50lbs. in mass.
Thanks for advice.

what i have heard is some 10 twist barrels will shoot the 105 some won't. i would use a 95 baltip. for a 50 pound deer you could go way down in bullet weight. i shot most of my deer with an 85 bthp they weighed 125 to 150 pounds.
