Sierra 180gr. SBT in 300WM

Just curious if anyone has used these bulletes and what are your impressions or thoughts. My plan is to be using these in my Remington 700 5R 300 WM for deer, elk or whatever else I can get a tag for. I'm thinking of using 76gr of H1000 to start and go from there. I chose these because of the high B.C. of .502 any info or advise??

I use the 200 SGK in my .308. It took a buck down this season w/o issue. I would say you could take an Elk nicely with either bullet.

Thanks, after looking at those I may give them a try also, I did notice that according to the website I was wrong on the B.C. for my180's i took the data from my manual.
