    You can use it for what ever you want with the right bullets. I have shot tons of deer with mine rabbits, fox, crows, and yotes to. I was going to use it for my cow elk until the Grizz decide to stay out and play. Then I figured I better pack the 300win. Mine is a 27inch #6 Hart 9twist on a REM 700 LA with a HS stock. The rifle weighs about 13lbs ready to go. I use the 105 Berger for every thing.

    The question is the twist. That is going to control what you can or cannot do with it as far as bullets.

    If its got an 8twist barrel you got a great long range critter getter!! If its got a slow twist you got a super "RED MIST" applicator.
    This old bench gun makes 750 yard prairie dogs too easy.With the 105-7 Berger's and Sierra's you don't wonder if you hit them=you know,sends them flipping /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
    Make a good stand gun for lopers or deer too!They call it a bench gun but shoots off the ground great too /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
    Barrel life is on the short side but used sparingly it will last you good long time.
