Hey what kind of accuracy can i expect from these?  I pick up a bunch and just wondering if any of you have had success with them.  I have amazing results with the matchking, and i dont want to compare it, its just one of you jerks bought all the sierra matchking 168 grainers in the whole state of utah.  So i am trying out other bullets.  I have had ok success with the Speer match 168 grain HPBT and now it is the A-Max turn.  Any suggestions with em?
thanks

AMAX 168s are poly tips, so not a hollow point, no?

If you want 168/175 SMKs, you can get them in 500ct boxes for good prices at the usual ONLINE places.

I'd load them up and fiddle and see for yourself.  I'm shooting some 178 AMAX out of my Savage LE2b and they've done OK.  Nothing great, but I'm still experimenting.

Some load development:

In my DPMS they group right there with the SMK and I can get them to move a little faster for the same charge weight.  I was only testing off my bipod without bags but I got 7 shot groups right at 1 MOA with them once they got moving at 2500fps+.  My best groups in the same config with the SMK were typically around .9 MOA.  Hard to really determine whats better bullet vs. which day I'm shooting better so far.

Guys with bagged bolt guns could probably tell more difference if it's there.
