Nosler custom comp bullets

Has anyone shot any medium game or varmints with the nosler custom competition bullets?
My 260 loves these bullets [140 grain] and I can keep them at mag length.
This will never be my go to hunting rifle, but some long range chucks, antelope and sitka deer may be on its menu.
Thanks, Sam

    They opened up okay on groundhogs in a .308! My cousin was using the 168's. I could never get the 175's to shoot out of my rifle.

    I shot pigs with the 308 caliber 168g Custom Comp bullet. Massive damage.

    The custom comps are nice bullets. I wouldn't hessitate to use these on deer size game. All the ground hogs I shot with them had massive damage. I think the 168gr custom comps did more damage than the 110gr v-max's I also used. I would use them in my .338 Lapua if they were available.

    Thanks for your input guys.

    The SMK 142 and 140 Amax take up alot of case capacity if I keep OAL to mag length, and I would like to keep this gun a repeater.

    The Nosler Custom Comps shoot great to 600 yds [farthest I've shot this gun] and I am thinking of trying F-class with it.
