    I have some 75g amax here if they are of interest to you
    A big fast bullet beats a little fast bullet every time

    They will be restricted to 2.250 OAL and in my rifle its miles from the lands and they shoot OK, not great.

    Yours will be a different story, just have to try them mate.

    Nothing to lose if they don't someone on here (like me) will buy them if they don't

    Have loaded them to max 2.25 OAL with big jump to lands and it's the most accurate ammo I've shot from my 1:7 twist cmmg

    I think these are the same as the American Eagle varmint tipped projectiles and I still can't produce a load that shoots as good as them, would love to know what powder's in them

    Are you refering to the z max or a max in this post?

    I have loaded the 75 amax to mag length and the bullet is seated in past the ogive? Bad im guessing
