From my experience with light weight 277 bullets at high velocity the advantage is less recoil allowing more consistent accuracy in field conditions.

90 and 110 grain bullets @ 3600FPS were super varmint loads but little chutes opened at about 420 for the 90s and just a little farther for the 110s. Shots beyond 425 were next to if not impossible. Shots around 420 yds were ~80% hits.

I'd figure the 115 SMK would do better than either the 90 or 110 grain offerings. Especially out of a WSM loaded up a bit.

I'd see if a decent load using a ball powder could be developed. Should extend barrel life a bit.

Let us know what pans out.....

What do you mean by extending barrel life a bit? Are you saying that using ball powder will extend barrel life?
