Re: 123 gr Amax on Deer

I have shot the 123 AMAX and 123 SST side by side with the same load. In my 260 AI they group within 1/2" of each other and shoot the same size groups.

My load gets 3090 fps average with RL 17 and shoots both bullets into the .3"s - .4"s.

I haven't got to take any game with either but should find out pretty soon how the SST's work on antelope.

Re: 123 gr Amax on Deer

Id like to hear how you do with the sst's I've developed a load for my 7mm08 that makes 1 ragged hole at 100 yds, i haven't taken it out to any distance yet, but i have shot large deer with that bullet and will go with that one this year. But I'm very interested in how you do with the sst. thanks!

Re: 123 gr Amax on Deer

I killed a mountain goat last year @300 yards with the 123 SST in a 260 rem hit him twice for good measure didn't want him going over the cliff. Both rounds were under the hide on the other side fully expanded I was really impressed with the mushroom of the bullet it shed about 30% and the rest stayed together just like there supposed to.

Re: 123 gr Amax on Deer

I've killed 4 Deer with Amax's, 2 with 140's out of a .260 and 1 with a 105 out of a .243. 2 DRT, 1 ran under 20 yards and the 4th ran under 25 yards. All were lung shots. The farthest shot 135 yards, nice big bodied 6 point, DRT, 105. My brother has killed 3-5 deer every year with his .243 and 105 Amax all DRT but 1, it went 10 yards.
