I've killed plenty of pigs with the 168 grain Amax. The wounds are typically nasty

All I has loaded was the Berger 130 VLD's (hunting) in the 6.5x47 when I got the call to go hunting. All deer died, but I can see from pics the AMAX probably would have been a better choice.

Not a better choice than a VLD Hunting, just another option. Those Berger's are bad medicine too.

Killed 4 deer this year with A-max's in the Grendel. I got to see a fifth one from another Grendel. I'll keep using them.

Any idea what they do when pushed hard? Like 3200 fps, or so.

I run a 75 gr. A-Max exactly that speed out of a .22-250. But I only shoot prairie dogs with it. It does tend to make a very impressive exit on those little critters. I don't know of that helps you, but that's all I got for that velocity. In a larger animal, such as coyote of even whitetail does I would expect good results even running that fast.

Amax in 6.5CM and 308 did quite a few one shot one kill ranging from 50-300 yards on hogs before New Years. One head shot was nasty.

My son smoked a doe at 325 yards with my Creedmore and a 140 AMAX last week. She fell so fast he didn't see it and thought she ran off with the rest of them. All the way through, great wound channel.

I suspected they may be a little soft for big game at velocities like that, but I don't know. If my ELD-X bullets show up and work out, it won't really matter, but I like to have options.

Good shooting!

That looks a lot like the performance of a hornady SST I used on a doe this past week.
