Thread: Hornady Amax as a Deer round?

    Hornady Amax as a Deer round?

    Hi all and thanks in advance.
    I have been using 155grn Hornady Amax heads in my 308 target rifle with spectacularly accurate results.
    I have heard of some guys using the Amax for deer and my question is ..is this true as i assumed the Amax was a target projectile only?

    You will probably be the recipient of quite a few replies to this one, you could also do a search as this one has reared its' head a couple of times previously.

    Must have been a politition who came up with calling the arse of a case the head.
    I have no problems with people calling the projectiles a head as it's almost less confusing
    than bullet. Dictionaries adapt to the spoken language, wait and see.

    A-max, in countries where it is legal to use them on game they work fine, as with every
    projectile the impact speed and type of game will dictate which bullet suits.
    155 or 168gr A-max in 308 works well for deer. Very similar to a SST.
