The SMK's were not designed for hunting but seem to yeild good results. Here is my take on it...
It was designed as a match round that found it's way into Military use. Hunters (the long range sort especially) tried it for it and some found it satisfactory for game.
If Sierra were to market it as a hunting round, the Military would not be able to use it correct? That being their largest contract i think they would redesign to make a hunting round.
I could be very wrong but that is the way I see it.
