Re: new 162gr. a-max's w/"amp" vs. old lots

Shoot a ground hog or p dog at 2200fps or faster and you will appreciate the amp jackets, very thin at the meplat and boattail, I shot a 55gal drum, quarter sized entrance, 12 gauge style exit! Ground hogs virtually explode! But for real, their bc's are slightly higher, I measured 3 out of a lot of 100 of the 30cal 178 bthp and they were within .0002" in every important aspect, the best hornady bullets so far in my opinion.
