    Anyone have experience deer hunting with Sierra 175 or 180 gr. MatchKing's out of a 300 Ultra Mag? Is their terminal performance reliably good out to 800 yards?

    I was hoping so. I searched and found game kills of hog and elk, but not whitetail. Thanks

    I use them in my 300 SAUM with great success too. I prefer the 175 SMK over the 178 AMAX. I have taken deer out to 315 yards with the SMK, and I have always had good exit holes. I am shooting them at around 2950 fps.
