Advice: A-Max in .300 Win Mag
I've been invited on a hunt on really short notice that'll likely require long range shots only (well my definition of long range anyway - 350yrds plus).
I'd be hunting springbuck and thought I could go for a less costly and more accurate bullet than I currently use.
With springbuck - which are small antelope - lighter bullet contruction should be just fine and accuracy will be more important.
Rifle is a .300 Win Mag (26" tube, 1 in 10"). It's a long story, but that's the only rifle I can take at the moment.
The question is: 168gr, or 178gr A-Max's (or even SST's)? Other suggestions?
How do the A-Max's do best, jammed in the lands, bit off, etc.? I've seen plenty about the A-Max in 7mm, but not much in .30.
I would play around myself, but time is going to be a problem.
Thanks very much for any input.
