Woodleigh 300 grain Soft Nose in 338 LM?

Just thinking... (always dangerous)... has somebody used these on big game? I found a supply for these, having hard time finding heavy .338 bullets in general.

My twist is 1/10,shouldn´t be a problem. 300 grain SMK:s shoot fine. And most importantly, my range is 250 to 500 yds only and this bullet MIGHT be a serious one for our large moose.

The manufacturer recommends 1800-2500 fps impact velocity. SD .375, BC .416
