Anybody shot it yet to get an ~confirmation on it's reported .51 BC?
Hornady tells me that they won't be out for another month or so.
Can't wait to try them in my 6.5x47 Lapua!
I saw this the other day as well. I can't believe what a big jump they got in BC in going from 120 grains to 123 grains.
You're celebrating BC of .510?
Have you considered the good old 123Lapua Scenar at .548?
Been around quite while..
I'm celebrating .51 BC with a polymer tip in a bullet that MAY increase terminal performance on varmint-sized critters at longer ranges.
The fact that they cost close to half of the price of lapua and are easier to find doesn't hurt either.
hoping this will fit the magazine and throat in my 6.5 Grendel (JP Enterprises). it would be the go to bullet for prairie dogs.
I picked up a bunch from Graf's a few weeks ago. Tried them out in my 6.5Lapua and averaged .395 at 100yds , 4-5 shot groups. At 465yds noticed a hair more drop than my 123 Lapuas. Rifle is a Barlein barreled Stiller action in a Manners stock.
This may be a very nice all around bullet for smaller 6.5 rounds. People need to keep in mind, the 123 Lapua does NOT have a .55 average G1 BC. In fact, when launched from Grendel velocities it averages below .5 from the muzzle to subsonic (this can be seen from Lapua's own CD data).
I expect the A-Max's actual BC will be very close, if not better than the Scenar and offer reliable expansion at long range. I've had good luck with the 140 so far, a good 123 will be a nice addition to the line.
