I haven't used that particular weight, but for the most part Partitions are a good general hunting bullet. For long range work though, I think that there are many better choices. If you compare the BC of .481, to the BC of Noslers 200 grain Accubond, which is .588, there's a huge difference. Then, there are also other bullets with even higher BC's. The lead tip can also suffer from deformity, again you may not notice huge differences in close range general hunting conditions, but when you get to long range work, this is all multiplied considerably.
