a max exits

Here´are some pics of 162 amax´s exit holes. Shots were not very LR, ranging between 220 and 400 yds. out of a 7 rm.

There is a 7rm case for comparison.

Animals were goats around 60 lbs.

All fell instantly, so the bullet works for not-heavy game.

    If I showed you what a 162gr A-Max (fired from my 7STW) did to a pronghorn @ 465yds you would probably get sick. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] It looked more like a groundhog getting hit by
    a 25-06. Guts blown right out of the animal. A-Max = large game varmint bullet. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I know what you mean. I omitted some pics of guts hanging from a bush. But if I hunt serious deer, I won´t go with an amax... but 160 accubond
