You'll be more than pleased. I just ordered another 500 yesterday to go with the 500 on the shelf.hmmm, I may have to order some 178 grain AMAX, and give them a try.
It's the only ballistic tipped bullet I've found that will shoot groups measuring 1/4 MOA at 300 yards.
Not only a great target/match bullet but a devastating hunting bullet. Just ask the boar shown in the pictures in this article:
.30 cal - Hornady A-Max
The deer shown also dropped in their tracks according to the article. You won't get terminal performance like this from a SMK or other "Match" bullet.
