Re: I need a quick opinion.
I am going to be shooting the same bullet in my SAUM late in the season to test myself. I would not hesitate to shoot a deer with it out to 500 yards with a 308. The problem I have and most close to me have with hunting with smk style bullets, is when you use small for caliber match bullets. I someone was using 130smk in a 7RM, I have a problem with that, but 168 NCC in a 308 . . . no problem.
The only deer I have seen my Uncle kill was with a 155smk out of a 308 at about 150 yards. One hole in; one hole out.
