I found an extremely accurate load in my 7mm Rem mag with the 162gr Amax backed by 57.5gr of IMR4350 in a Norma case with a rem mag primer. This load is shooting one hole groups 3 shot groups @100. This the first time I have used the Amax and must say I am impressed. I know a lot of you have used them on game and was wondering how explosive they are at around 2900fps on deer? Some times I come across very close shots ware I hunt. I should be ok as long as I stay off the shoulders right?
