I have some 168gr bergers to try, but am a little Leary because I have not had much luck with them in the past. How do the Amax bullets perform on game??
If you change bullets,especally from one type to another you need to start over in the load
look at the performance on game with hunting bullets and the accuracy on target bullets.
Sometimes you can get both accuracy and terminal performance from a hunting bullet but
rarely does a target bullet give good performance (Wound channel) on game.
Most target bullets are excessive and destroy to much tissue. (Like varmint Hunter I have
never seen that much damage even with a target bullet but it doesen't surprise me.
So my recommendation would be to pick the hunting bullet of your choice and work up the
most accurate load for it.
I personally have found the Accubond very accurate and dependable on game under all
conditions and with varied hits.
Just my opinion
