My 7600 pump in .30-06 drives a 208 AMax at 2450 fps with H4350. Puts 3 shots in one inch at 100 metres. Has anyone ever used this bullet for deer, elk, moose?

I know conventional wisdom has it that target bullets should not be used for hunting. They are supposed to drill neat little holes right through a critter. But I have used 52 and 75 AMax in .224 for g`hogs and coyotes and they both explode inside the animal. You have to have a strong stomach to look at a chuck hit with a 52 AMax out of a .22-250.

So maybe the 208 AMax is too explosive for hunting? Anyway I would appreciate any feedback based on hunting experience with this bullet.

I do not have 1st hand experience with the A-max for hunting; however, my 'smith friend has killed deer and elk with 162 gr A-max in .280 AI. I would think your .30-06 7600 pushing the 208 gr A-max at 2450 fps would do fine for hunting. Given proper bullet placement.

Last year we shot a nice 3 point mulie with the 208 AMAX out of a 300 Win mag at 3000 fps(28" barrel). Shot was at 320 yards, and very little of the bullet was recovered. It looked like the bullet expanded and moved on through.
