Re: bullets like hornady amax for long range hunting

IN MEXICO WE SHOOT for competition at live sheep/goat at 400 or 500 meters, I usually shoot from my 308 win the 178 grain a-max and get terrific results.

last year I shot a javelina with my 6.5-284 with the 140 a-max at almost 500 meters and you would not belive the exit hole it left, almost a grapefruit though it did hit the spine.

I would not hesitate using it.
I also own a 338 edge and the matchkings rule for hunting.

Joe from mexico

    I had very good results with the 162gr 7mm AMAX.
    One shot kills at 600yds and 400yds on antelope last year. Both dropped on the spot!

    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.[/QUOTE]


    --I know this is a really old post, but I just joined and saw that you are in Gillette, as am I, are the 208's still up for grabs? Just bought a 300 win Mag. Looking for a good heavy long range bullet. Hit me back if they are still available. Thanks....

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.

    Do you still have any amaxs for sale? Looking to try a few?
