Hornady piled a whole heap of accuracy enhancing features on this round’s 155 grain bullet. The A-MAX has Hornady’s own Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket and a swaged lead core, which together give the bullet the outstanding balance it needs to remain rotationally stable throughout the 308’s entire effective range. The A-MAX slides through the air thanks to its secant ogive profile, which lacks a cannelure that would have made it rougher, as well as its pointed polymer tip and drag-reducing boat tail. When the A-MAX exits a 24” barrel at a rate of 2,850 feet per second, its 0.435 G1 ballistic coefficient assures that it won’t become subsonic and destabilized until it reaches approximately 1,100 yards. Gadzooks!
Some folks mistake the A-MAX for a hunting bullet because of its crimson polymer tip, but a sage like you already knows that the match bullet isn’t designed for terminal expansion. No animal would like to get shot with an A-MAX, but its terminal ballistics just aren’t suitable for hunting. BLACK series ammo is versatile, as it’s designed for reliable functionality in all manners of 308 firearms.
