The 162gr A-max's are as accurate as anything out there, they have a BC of .625 and are less than $30 for a box of 100.

    I've looked at the AMAX but how do they perform on deer sized game?

    I've only taken 1-2 deer with it (both one shot kills) but they were head/neck shots so not a great test (other than for accuracy). Others should jump in, if not, do a search as it's been discussed several times on this board.

    My rifle shoots the 162 Amax and the 160gr Accubond to almost the same poi (within 1/2moa) when loaded to the same velocity.

    The point is that the 162gr is cheap and accurate and shoots to nearly the same poi that the 160gr Accubonds do. The Accubonds aren't so cheap but are accurate. Depending on what Biggame you are shooting at, these 2 bullets cover the spectrum pretty well for the 7mm Rem Mag.

    I have used the 162 a-max on game and have taken mainly broadside shots, just behind the front leg, sometimes the shoulder blade got clipped.
    Ranges from 358 - 638 yards (7 animals ).
    The amount of meat wastage was no worse than any other bullet. All shots were complete pass through except two.

    I would definetly recommend the a-max, but don't use them too close! I have set a personal limit of not inside 300 yards.

    Do a search on my username and you will see most of the game I ,or friends, have taken using this combo.
