    What is your opinion of the A-max bullet? I am probably going to buy bulk Sierra Matchkings for target shooting and pelt hunting. I am considering A-max for military sporter rifle and general practice.

    In my experience they are very accurate. They are my long-range match bullet in 7mm RM.

    Great match bullet that easily doubles as a good big game bullet (178gr A-max).

    I know my AR-50 likes those 750 gr AMAX bullets, I know I couldn't have hit the 1 mile target we had set up without using them. :cool:

    In my opinion, it's worth trying in any pursuit of accuracy. Only YOUR rifle can tell you just how accurate it might be.

    I love them. They shoot as well as SMK's in most of my .308's. I have taken deer to 600 yards cleanly with them.

    + 1 for tango2echo, I also shoot 168 A-max out of my .308 some of the most accurate bullets I have shot out of my Tikka Varmint.
