I posted on another thread that I think Hornady should make a .224 65 grain A max. I guess it's just my nature, I'm never satisfied, grass is always greener...
I was wondering if anyone has any bullets in mind that they want, but can't have. Basically, if you could ask the bullet makers for something, what would it be?

Just wondering, but what would you use the 65 grain A-max in a .223 for?

I guess I pretty much have what I want from the ammo/bullet makers. I'm settled on one load for each of my centerfire rifles, and use that load for anything I hunt with that rifle. It works well for me, because I know what to expect, and the load is always one I've used for a while.

For my handguns, I play with different loads, but still go back to the same loads for each when I'm hunting. Just my nature, I suppose, but my bullet needs are pretty well covered.

Hmmmm... I would have to say more varmint bullets for the 7mm and 30 caliber bracket i am a hunter of the perverbial "red mist" and love to shoot my 7x57 and .300 win mag at gophers and such and just melt when they turn into nothing but a red spot on the ground:D:D:D

I would use the A-max to shoot long range paper and steel same as the 69 SMK. I can't shoot the 75 A-max so it would be nice if there was a 65. It would be another option- something new to try out. Seems like the BC is better when compared to bullets of equal weight. There's a 52 and a 75, I'd would like to have something in the middle.
If they were on the shelf next to the SMK's I would buy some. Oh yeah and the 80, so 52, 75, 80. There's a gap there...

130 grain 25 cal Partition or accubond for the 25-06 & 257 WBY would give them more Verse ability to take larger game, that would be my wish
