Are the 75grain AMax in .224 any good ???

I am looking for suitable bullets for long range varmint shooting in my new .223AI and am considering the 75grain AMax, my only concern is inconsistency.

I have shot the V-Max in .243 and they were incredibly inconsistent in length and weight which may not affect short range accuracy, but certainly affected long range groupings in my rifle.

I resorted to the bergers in the end and I found them to be a lot more consistent.

They will probably shoot quite well (IF) you have an 8 twist.......Rich
