Re: 135g smk
25-06, I used these in my Ruger 270 just for paper. I am currently using the 140 grain sierra's like yourself, just because I wanted a "hunting" bullet....that said, these shoot crazy good out of my rifle, and considerably better even than the 140's (which is not bad). For what it's worth, I was using the max load listed right on the can on H4831... 59.5 grains. Your call on game, sounds like they should be fine for deer.
Side note, when do you ship out?
