Thanks for posting Bewsher - nice to see in film what most of us see on the ground.
It's a shame the A-max don't work on UK deer
Thank you bewsher, really interesting.
308 using a 168 grain will have a MV of about 2700 fps. At 500 yards you are down to about 1900 fps. He made the point in the title that they were looking at bullets for long distance and slow TV's.
Would be very interesting to see the same beasts shot at 100 yards (UK distances) with a 30-06 and a TV of more like 2800 fps.
Bet the Amax would have made a bit more of a mess!
So much to learn and so little time left
He should have been using the 130gr tsx for a fairer comparison. It is interesting and fairly objective though.

that can't be an amax bullet bewsher , they are not suitable for deer.
Right where's those stones , I'll start !
Don't mention the a word !!!!
All pull together to raise the phoenix from the ashe
the bullet as such is not the problem, as touched on the impact velocity is the key component. Mono metals too slow are like fmj and softpoints too fast are frangible from the likes of ultra mags. The frangible Max's are the devil but slow they act like softpoints because the forces acting on them on impact aren't so high as to rip them apart.
Take all of that an bin it if you buy factory hunting ammo and shoot an sensible 'stalking' ranges
