Good question FMJ. What about the 75 Grain V-Max? Doesn't the 80 Gr cause feeding problems?

75 and 80 grain A-Max bullets are designed for competition, to be loaded longer than mag length and single loaded.

Hornady said they would deliver 300 of the 80 AMAXs to me by mid-March. Still no bullets. I will share results with my White Oak SR when I get them. Unless they group unbelievably great, the 75 AMAX is probably a better bet. A 0.02 net increase in BC isn't worth 100fps or more loss in velocity. We will see.

So they cant be loaded to fit mag? Bummer? I will wait for Black Hills 100rg I guess!

The 100 gr has been tested out in the black book I think I rember reading a liitle article? It was 5 years ago or more!

Great info and the BEST BOOK out there.

I'm pretty sure the ogive is very long and that's why you can't load them mag length. Kinda like the deal with the 75 BTHP, with a short ogive, allowing mag length laoding, but the 75 A-Max is typically loaded out to 2.4" or longer to get close to the lands. i suspect the 80 A-Max is just more of the same, it's Hornady's answer to Sierra's and JLK's 80 BTHP which are also a long ogive bullets.
