I have an AZ cow elk hunt this year and will be using a 7mm rum. I have available locally hornady 162g amax bullets. Personal ability will limit my shooting this year to 500yds. Everything I have read so far looks down on the amax for hunting because of its construction but, results that I have read about say it preforms just like the berger vld that everyone on this site loves. I would like to stay in the 160 to 180g range on bullets and my load book recommends nothing lighter than the 140's. You guys have not steered me wrong in 2 years so, whats your opinion on the amax for elk?
