Varget is very good as well, especially when you have large temperature swings. I cant remember the exact load but will dig it out if required.

The test involved filling a saline drip bag with ballistic gelatine and hanging this at a set distance from a large paper witness screen. The distances being one, two and five metres and the purpose was to identify the size and energy of the bullet fragments after primary impact. The saline bag was chosen because the material behaves in a similar fashion to skin. Shots were fired from 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300m to give some indication of behaviour as the bullet shed velocity.
Results were very interesting. At all ranges the Amax had terminal effects similar to the Vmax. Very few fragments punctured the paper two metres behind the targets, none the paper at five, but in all cases the targets themselves exploded.
My conclusion was that I could not differentiate between the two by terminal effects , therefore they are, as far as I am concerned the same. However, unlike Vmax I can have any quantity of Amax delivered by post.

.338LM is right mate Amax is a very good bullet, I have used them alot,they are like a cheaper version of the nozla round well worth a look,but I settled on the speer hollow point as these seemed to suit the gun,and I needed a round that left everything in the animal if possible, I got a tighter group with them and when used on fox are quite impressive,tell you what though, take note what your local suppliers have in stock and get the most common of the two,
best of luck

what does the amax deform like ??
In .223 it explodes on impact. In the larger cals it is more useful for game hunting. In NZ it is often used as such.
