Over the last few years I have been shootin more and more of the AMAX bullets. Mostly at my gun club for target shooting. They give me superb accuracy, and I do mean superb!!!! Even over the Nosler and Berger bullets that I have shot. I recently purchased a rifle in 300 SAUM. Thought what the heck. Worked up a load with the 168 AMAX and the first day at the range with a moderate load of H4895 was able to shoot a few groups of under 1/2 inch at 100 and 200 yards. My first shot at a hog with an AMAX out of the 300 SAUM was spectacular. Hit in the neck at 258 yards and there was only a little piece of fur holding the body together at that point. Good terminal performance. Could not get the kind of grouping with a Nosler 165. Keep up the good work guys. Love your stuff,
Mark Swab
