    I just acquired 300 7mm 162 amax national match. What kind of accuracy and terminal performance can i expect. I already shoot the regular amax and they shoot extremely well.

    Are you talking about the polymer tip National Match, or the aluminum tip National Match.
    I have used both, and consider the new polymer tip A-Max to be a more "accurate" bullet than the aluminum tip national Match bullet, but the terminal performance of the aluminum tip bullet is devastating compared the the polymer tip.

    I have about 1,500 of the aluminum tip National Match bullets waiting for a new .284 something...

    I'm sure the accuracy will be acceptable and you'll be pleased with the terminal performance.

    thanks for the reply. One more question. On the ones you have shot did you use the same load data as your regular a-max or did you start from scratch.
