Re: Hornday 208Gn A-Max Or Sierra 200 SBT Gameking?
I use the 162 gr. Amax out of a 7stw at 3240fps. I have shot deer and elk out past a thousand yrds. I have had complete pass throughs on elk but only if it is behind the shoulder blade and around 850yrds or further where I'm guessing the bullet slows down enough to hold together well enough to make it through. Deer I've had pass throughs a couple times at different ranges. With my expierence the Amax is a great hunting bullet for deer and I've had great luck on elk with them too. Probably have killed more than 10 with the 162 and all but one were one shot kills. Even that one only used one shot but we had to finish him off with a knife when we got to him. I would use the 208 and have full confidence if it were me but then again I also expect to be walking half the times I ride in a Chevy. If ya get what I'm saying.
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
