139 lapua scenars

I've got some 139 lapua scenars loaded up running 3280 fps, shooting really well out of my 6.5 Gibbs, anybody tried these on game? any idea how they'll perform on smallish whitetails (140 pounds max.)
Shot 3 at 505 yds that went into just under 2" this is really well with me thumbin the trigger.

I saw them do nothing but poke holes in an antelope at just over 900 yards from a 6mm short mag last year. They are great match bullets (very consistent) but not so good for game in my experience.
