How U finding stocks of Amax over here?
I had 200 in the safe a few months back till I read they we going to discontinue them. So decided to concentrate on 168 Bergers and Nosler AB. If the weather was a bit more settled I could get out and start load testing over the holidays. Flooding and high winds at the mo round here. Just what U want when you have a new toy that needs to be brocken in.
Hi mate ,
Yes i did put a post up about my 280 Ackley!!!
I like the thought of good quality Nosler custom ready formed brass too!!!
As for the 162 A-max , yes getting hold of them can be a bit thin on the ground but thanks to some good contacts i was able to get a 1000 of them in!!!
As i use them for hunting and they shoot well , i wanted to make sure i had plenty to last me as i am lead to believe Hornady has just suspended production and not discontinued them!!
Know what you are saying about the stormy weather as i was on call last week - out clearing storm blown trees and clearing foods!!!
Hope you dont mind - heres a quick video of when all my load development was done and long range testing , i went out hunting / Fox at 260yds / bunnies at 240 and 326yds.........
As you can see by the video those 162s have plenty of downrange energy...
Enjoy your new rifle and shall look forward to future installments of how you get on with the rifle...
