    I was curious if anyone has tried this bullet on game and if so, what were the results? Do they perform similarly to the 300 grain SMK or do they not perform well? Thanks in advance.

    They expand more violently that the 300smk. I've shot 6 Whitetails and all hit the ground immediately. Also two large coyotes that were blown apart. 30" barrel EDGE 97 grains Retumbo. Gary Campbell
