    yeah, using a 140gr. smk. It did well, I havent used it at anything longer than 300yrds but it dumped them up to there pretty well. Its not a fling them to the ground cartridge with that bullet but it will kill them within a few yards. I tried the 140 amax but didt get the kind of accuracy I was wanting.
