Anyway thats a nice buck, probably one of the bigger ones that we saw while we were there.

That Amax is the only thing I found that that rifle will shoot. I tried everything. It's spitting them out at 2450fps so the shock isn't to bad. My .243 on the other hand shoots 87 gn VLD's at 3180fps, I learned this year that under 200yds I'll be shooting them in the neck or head.
