I've shot a bunch of the 7mm 168 Nosler CC's...But only at paper. I wouldn't use them on game.
They were just as easy to load for as anything else... They were fairly accurate. They were definitely a target bullet and not a hunting bullet, they were a very inexpensive bullet to manufacture, as the tips and meplats were not concentric.
Once again, I personally would never use them on any live animal.
If you want a 168gr bullet to use on game, try the Berger 168 VLD, 168 Classic Hunter, Barnes 168 LRX, or a Nosler 160 Accubond, or 150gr Nosler Ballistic Tip (for yotes, NOT deer).
