    I am shooting a 30-338 lapua ai, i was curious if anyone has shot any of the 208 amax, for hunting, if so what was your opinion on how they performed on game. Thanks Shannon.

    I can't help you on the 208, but the 7mm 162 proved devastating on deer and antelope here in SD. My wife and I shot 2 antelope and 2 mule deer this past season and the furthest one went about 20 yds, two of the 4 dropped in their tracks. All but one was shot over 400 yds.
