I shoot 168 SMKs because for anything beyond 800 I'd just get the 338LM out or wait for it to get closer! Agree 100% on the A-Max though. Great bullet, easy to get too.

Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.
The best ammo for what purpose? I do like the 168g Federals but they are quite expensive around 22-24 USD. I sighted the rifle in with these. For everyday range shooting and letting my friends shoot the XCR-M, I have had the best luck with PMC 147g FMJ's which are about 12-16 USD. They consistently shoot 1.5-2 moa @ 100 yards. I have yet to try the Federal XM80C rounds that I bought for 11.99 a box.
