Whitetail w/300 SMK?

Is the 300gr. SMK an ok bullet for whitetails out of a 338 Edge? If not what would be the best?

Shot 2 last year with the 300 SMK. One at 498, and one at 726. They worked great.

Re: Whitetail w/300 SMK?

Do the 300 SMK seem to expand much, or come apart like Bergers do? I guess I should have asked what characteristics does the bullet have upon impact rather than will it work. I think the Edge would kill a whitetail even if you loaded spitwads.
