    yes very much now, I was very worried at first even send it to TC to double check if it supposed to do it, there was an issue with how bolt operated it was very very stiff on closing with round in the chamber, but after I played with dummy round for 20 minutes or so it turned nicely. Reloads yes I reload for it, I used them during deer season, one thing I learned those 155 - 168 HPBT very accurate and deadly. I used 168 gr on 500 yards and they grouped nicely 2.8", back then I had 9x scope.
