Would either or both of these bullets be good for deer and or elk?
MV's on the 162 would be in the 2700 fps
and the MV on the 140 A-Max would be 2800 fps.

Reason for slower MV's is they would be used in a specialty handgun.

Thanks

I'd take a good look at the 160gr Accubond for game heavier then whitetails. It proved to be very accurate in 2 of my 7mm rifles.

For what its worth, they have been shipping the newer 140gr Accubonds too.

Heck, I shoot groundhogs with A-Max bullets!

Just to be sure of adequate penetration, use the SST in the same bullet weights.

I doubt you will have any problems at those muzzle vel, BUT there are times when you need to take a "poor" angle shot.

I hunt with the SST and have never had a problem. They are wonderfully accurate and sometimes even have a higher BC then the Amax or matchking.
