Thread: Amax

  1. #1

    Amax

    Just heard hornady are pulling Amax. That will be a blow. Never shot them but presume Sierra matchkings are as good?

    Hornady are slowly replacing Amax with the new ELD projectile and Vmax with the ELD-x projectile.

    This has already taken place with some lines.

    That's really annoying as AMax is my standard target bullet for 6.5x55. I have a Lapua Scenar load that also works so I guess I will switch to that.

    Least it'll stop folk arguing about whether or not they're OK to shoot deer with haha
    Next time you're walking down the street and see a homeless person go buy them a sandwich and a coffee, change of fate and it could be you one day !!!

    BUY BRITISH !!!!

    Hornady’s ELD-X bullet features a long, javelin-like body, a boattail base and the new Heat Shield Tip to improve long-range performance. Thanks to its tip, a sophisticated jacket and Hornady’s Interlock design,the ELD-X is a reliably expanding projectile intended for all-range hunting."

    Will the ELD Match expand like the Amax ?

    Keep the A max for targets and use Sierra Gamekings, 150gn@ 2650 ft/sec and drop the deer without fear of pencilling them.

    But it's the amax they are phasing out. Like you I think gamekings are the business but wonder if matchkings are a good alternative to amax

    Are you referring to the "new" matchkings with the plastic tip which are the Sierra equivalent to the A-Max or the traditional matchkings?
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
