Regarding the A-max's, it just depends on the impact velocity. I limit use to around 2600 fps and below and I haven't had any issues. For closer shots I carry a 2nd bullet that shoots very close to the same POI and will hold together at higher impact velocities.
I was talking in general about the .308 and 6.5 critics. I have a Model Seven with a 20" tube and I'm wondering of that'd be a good bullet for me since I will probably struggle to to 2700-2800 fps. I was thinking about trying the 123 gr in my .260.
