Sierra 135gr HPBT Matchkings for hunting

I live in South Africa and have started using 135 gr hpbt mk from Sierra in my 270 savage/anschutz to hunt with. Has anyone else tried this? I have had great results. My latest quarry was a 240kg Blue Wildebeest that dropped dead on the spot shot at 220 meters (how many yards is that?)I also dropped a Kudu bull a month ago.

What I thought - both these were close shots but my trip next week to the Karoo will call for 300 meters plus! How well do these bullets perform out at that distance - I am referring to accuracy. Both bullets I mentioned earlier were retrieved and had mushroomed very well.
