Re: Hornady 208gr AMAX For Hunting

Anyone else have any luck with the 208 AMAX or any AMAX on big game? Thanks

    You should buy and read this book. The Practical Guide to Long Range Hunting
    You will find it very helpful.

    I didn't think I asked anything about needing help or saying I didn't know what I was doing. I simply asked what peoples experience was with these bullets. I'm not buying some guide to read something I most likely already know. I have the right cartridges but just wanted to see what bullets others were having success with.

    Sorry. The author of this book shares extensive information on ballistic and terminal performance of the exact projectile in question here on your thread. I found this book extremely helpful and it inspired me to build a 308 norma mag(should be done in a couple weeks). I am in no way affiliated with the author or book. I just thought you would find it very interesting and helpful because the content is so closely related to your question. I meant no offense.

    Well in that case I'm so very sorry for taking offense to your suggestion. I took it the wrong way and I thought you were implying that I need to do more research and that I didn't know what I was talking about. I hope you will forgive my misunderstandment. On second thought I'm also in the process of building my first long range magnum rifle and it happens to be a .308 Norma such as yours! Mine is being built by my Uncle (who's a gunsmith) and me (who is very interested in the gunsmith trade.) When your Norma is all done I'd really like to see some of pics of it! Again sorry for the big misunderstandment.
