quote "I just re-barreled my Savage 7-08 to handle the 162 AMax...
If your twist is fast enough, it has an amazing BC of .625. I've read that some use it for hunting, but Hornady doesn't recommend it for that application. "
Use the 162 SSts, they have the same BC as the Amax and are designed for hunting. I bought some for my 7mag, but it groups better with the 154 SSTs. Decided to use the 154s in the 7mm08 to reduce inventory. I may try the 162s since I have some to use anyway and see what I can get.
