Re: Most accurate factory bullet that is not solid?

The most accurate bullets I have shot in many rifles are the Hornady AMAX hands down. SMK's are great, Nosler Ballistic tips and accubonds are also great but for raw accuracy, I have had consistent spectacular results with the AMAX's in every rifle.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
