Thread: 6.5mm a-max

    6.5mm a-max

    hello there, do a-max expand enough to knock a fox down on the spot? or will it go through and run off?

    cheers charlie

    Never used them but there are many who think they are very effective on live targets.....

    yes and anything else you choose to shoot with them within reason
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    I think that knock-down has a lot to do with how fast you push them...

    a coffee jug will kill a fox its how fast you sling it ! lots of chaps love the amax for all things shooting , me i would rather not give the old bill more ammo to prove i don't no the law

    they don't expand as much as vmax's for example. but they do expand. doubt the fox will go very far....

    Have a look at the long range blog 38 on YouTube, there are several deer shot with A max that leave a huge blood trail that would suggest they do expand. I wouldn't hesitate to use them on foxes

    I have a mate who swears by his 6.5 with amax heads. Shoots reds out to 300yds with them. Dead on the spot.
    I would fancy trying them, but do agree with paul o' - there's been stacks of debate on here as to the legality of amax for deer.
