You will no doubt get a difference of opinion on this subject ranging from poor to excellent. My personal opinion as a bullet maker and one who has tested smk's is both
Plus': excellent accuracy, high B.C., Minus': no expansion at lower velocities, inconsistent expansion at medium velocities, come unglued at higher velocities. (this will often cause devastating kills). A lot of people use them, and I'm sure a lot of game has been taken with them, but IMO, there are better "more consistent" hunting bullets....Rich
