What is your quarry with that load?

No need for you to be curious. I'm just being a sarcastic jackass ( its a stretch, right) to those who even after multiple pictures of the damage done by the AMax bullets,and multiple success stories, and even Hornady themselves stating they were suitable for thin skinned game......they refuse to accept them as a "hunting bullet".

Bullcrap. Amax bullets are for paper targets, not animals.

Reason I ask is I've been following this thread and I'm intrigued but apparently the bullets have to pass through paper to be effective on game.
It's not. You just have to realize that for ever member that views this thread there's probably 200 non-registered lurkers doing the same thing. So not everything I post is for the direct benefit of the participating members. I'd hate for some neophyte non-loading lurker to run out and buy a 6mm Rem based upon something I posted not realizing he's not going to be able to find any boolits for it.
Kind of a public service announcement, if you will.
Smack steel with it too:jester:
Right, I get all yhat, I was just playing along.

Back in about 66 or 67 when they made rifles legal for turkeys here in Wy. I wrote Jack Oconnor about a "turkey" load for the 243. He wrote me back a short letter and suggested a light load of 3031. That load shot well in my rifle, but I never got to shoot a turkey with it, but I did kill a huge whitetail buck with that load. The only turkey I shot with the 243, the bullet went right up his spine and split him in two, like you was going to put him in a spit over a fire or such..
