have allways shot the noslers (300 wsm, 300wim mag, 25-06)
with great results all around
What is the deal with the bergers Two guys I shoot with sometimes have tried them and could not get them to shoot t all (300 win mag) I dont know what or how they loaded them just they could not get a good group.
I have limited knowledge of this stuff thats why im asking you guys who knowI really like the bc on the AMAx but was affraid it would come apart at short ranges
BTW my boy shot his first deer with my 300 wsm last week 75 yrds dropped it dead.
Hornady does or has recommended the A-Max for hunting big game (deer/antelope). I have used the the 140 .264 A-Max in the past with a 6.5-284 on Kansas buck with great success.
Some barrels like Bergers, while others do not. Some barrels like the A-max's, while others do not.
Nothing wrong with the Nosler AB's-Great bullets. The BC is just not as good as the bullets I am talking about. The minimum impact velocity for the Berger's and the AB's is 1800 fps.
In LR hunting you are looking for a bullet that will perform well on game and give you the least amount of wind drift.
