I like the amax also, but I would be careful with close shots on deer (stags)..may not penetrate if you hit heavy bone.

Andy, have you tried the scenars on game??

Also bear in mind the new 130 accubond, BC is around.48.. not as good as the amax but better I think than the TSX. And may shoot better also.

I agree on the 26 " barrel.... one thing is shooting from a bench, and the other is carrying the rifle around.

Hi Alg

it has been a long time..


I haven't used Scenars on game, however, my own 284 just loves 142 SMK, so much so that I fear the barrel may be due for replacement very soon.

"Dear Mr Krieger"........

Getting Accubonds where I olive in the UK, is just about impossible, I've had some 7mm on order for over 6 months now, but i'm still waiting for the 7mm/300WSM anyway so its really irelevant. Sidetracking a little, I had the chance to handle one of Pete's Avengers at the Midland Game Fair on sunday, exceptional machining work and the bolt glides like melted butter - glad i'm waiting for one - I ditched the Hansen idea.
