Hello everyone,

I have a Remington 700 LTR with 20” barrel and topped with a Swarovski 3-10x42. This rifle shoots factory Federal ammunition with Berger 168 Elite (believe is actually a Classic Hunter) into 1 ragged hole.

I know reload and have not been able to find 168gr Classic Hunters. I have Lapua brass and almost 2000 CCI BR4 primers and about 7 lbs of Varget (use in 3 different 7mm-08’s).

Anyway, how does the 168gr A Max compare in terminal performance to the Berger Classic Hunter? Shots will be mainly on whitetail from close to 300 yards.

Thanks
Steve

I'm using the 168 amax in my remington 700 308 I'm loading them with 44.5 grain of varget in lupua brass and they have performed very well for me they shoot same POI as the the 152 hammers and the 168 classic hunters at 100 yards
