    I am looking for suitable bullets for long range varmint shooting in my new .223AI and am considering the 75grain AMax, my only concern is inconsistency.

    I have shot the V-Max in .243 and they were incredibly inconsistent in length and weight which may not affect short range accuracy, but certainly affected long range groupings in my rifle.

    I resorted to the bergers in the end and I found them to be a lot more consistent.

    They will probably shoot quite well (IF) you have an 8 twist.......Rich

    The barrel is an 8 twist Kreiger.
