Reviews and comments written for the Hornady A-Max bullet.
I loaded the 105 A-max in my .243 Win for whitetails because of the great reviews I had read. It didn't live up to the hype. Two deer shot, both broadside near 80 yards, both had minimal blood trails and no expansion. The exit hole on both deer were the same size as the entrance. Very accurate but not deadly on deer.

I switched to this by on the advice of a reloading buddy at our local gun shop & BOY i am glad i took his advice .The 208 grn has the beat of both worlds IMHO they are super asupet accurate & hit HARD i took a large Whitetail doe this past season with the 208 A-Max @about 278 yards & it rolled het a 180 before she hit the ground . I loaded this bullet in my ne Remington Model 700 SPS in 300RUM 26" bbl . I will not ever use no other bullet but the Hornady 208 grn A-Max

this is the best bullet I could find to use for both target-shooting and hunting even though it is not recommended by hornady it's becoming well known as an instant kill with them they leave about a fist size exit in your .308 I use the 208grn A-max in my 300 wby with retumbo makes a nasty or nice:) round for boar at a 1000+yrd but need to put the load-h at 93.42-50mm but must are very accurate! also retumbe is a powder that is to be compressed for best r but I found a little re-leaf space can do wonders with it 83.2 in your nosler brass 84.6 wby brass 83.2 R-l best in wby brass go figure lol 81.4 R-l is nice with the nosler-b

I use 75gr. a max bullets in a 22-243 at 3500 ft/sec with great results. They will shoot 1/2" to better groups and still do a great job killing. I took a whitetail dead in his tracks at a little over a 100 yards. The bullet fragments were traped under the skin with about a 1 inch wound channel.

For not being recommended for use on game, performance on whitetails it nothing short of outstanding. Averaging sub 1 inch groups at 200 yards, it is effective way out there.Hits out to 300-450 result in knockdown and near instant death. Long live the STW and the A-MAX
