Re: Hornady match bullets/big game

We killed 4 deer this year using 140 AMax out of a 6.5 284 at ranges of 530,680,733 and 742 yds. Results were all pretty much the same. Dead deer. See pics.



We'll be using them again next year. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    How fast are you pushing the 140 amax in your 6.5-284

    Hornady Match
    Thanks a bunch guys for all the good information on the Hornady bullets both A-Max and regular match. I especially appreciate the information on the 168 Hornady match bullet out of the 30/06 which is fairly close to the .308 I would be using. Years ago I had seen results on the 6.5 284 using Hornady std match bullets for hunting with good results but up to now, I had seen little on the Hornady's with most information posted referencing Sierra match bullets.

    There is a lot of interesting good information here and I appreciate it.

    thanks again guys..

    regards

    Paul

    Harv,

    The 140 AMax is travelling 2940fps from a 28" Douglas barrel.
