    Perhaps someone ought to tell the other vendors selling A-Max by post. I bought some from Sportsman not long ago, I use them on the range at the shooting club I belong to.

    Had this discussion with firearms and was told that expanding is only expanding if it say hunting, game or implies expanding in connection with shooting live animals. If it says target, match or implies accuracy for target shooting then it's non expanding.

    So what it implies the product is suited for on the box determines if it is expanding or not and it is nothing to do with the performance of the bullet in use.

    I heard they were in use in Afghanistan by some American troops as they were a "target" bullet and therefore allowable under the Hague convention.
    And good shooting to them that use them.

    sounds like a bullet designed for top end target shooting to me...

    Can anyone show us a bullet that won't expand. Guaranteed.?
    We managed to get armour piercing tungsten carbide bullets to expand and fragment.
    All bullets expand mainly depends on what they hit and what speed.
    They should just remove that silly law. Save goverment money.
