Re: bullets like hornady amax for long range hunting
If your shooting the 300 RUM, the 208 amax is a great choice, buck the wind great and are awesome for accuracy! Used to shoot them outta my wsm at 2800 and it shot like a dream! Never shot game with the 208 but i have taken an antelope and deer with the 6.5 140 amax. The higer the impact velocity the more internal desctruction you prolly see. The whitetail I shot was at around 80 yards and impact velocity at around 3100 and the bullet never did exit but destroyed the internals. The deer went about 30 yards and was dead! The antelope was at 550 yds and the amax appeared to have excellent controlled expansion passing all the way through and leaving a golf ball sized exit hole. The antelope fell over dead. Impact velocity at around 2500 fps.
If you havnt found any yet and are interested i think i have 550 or so of the 208's I dont shoot 30 cal anymore so there's no use for them here. Let me know if you wanna come to a deal on them.
