Re: 208 A-max's on large big game
Both the Berger 210 and Amax 208 are thinly jacketed target bullets. They will work well on shots thru the ribs and at long range where the velocity is less and therefore penetration is more. But IMO they are not tough enough to take on any really big or dangerous critter head on. In other words I won't want to shoot a charging grizzly bear head on at close range. The man asked for something to possibly defend in grizz country. I'll take a Accubond, partition, North Fork, Swift, or any of the 180 grain all copper bullets any day on a grizz or any shot up close on really heavy game.
The 200 grain Accubond has a high enough BC to work at long range and enough toughness for bad angle shots, close shots, or dangerous game.
