Rated 5 out of 5 by rugerman the best there is I have been using this ammo for the past three years and will not use any other while hunting big game. The preformance of this ammo, combinded with my ruger rifle surpasses all other ammunition I have ever used. Every animal I have hit with this ammo has dropped in its tracks. This ammo delivers everything you need in a quality hunting round, not found in other brands. Buy this ammo you will not be sorry and you will be like me and never go back to any other type.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Papaw Terrible accuracy I bought this ammo when I bought my Tikka T3 in 300 WSM, for an elk hunt. I went through an entire box trying to get a decent group. (After Bass Pro had bore sighted my Burris FullField 4.5 - 14x scope) I was mad and my shoulder hurt! I bought a box of Remington CorLokt and had the thing grouped in 5 shots. The Remington was about $13 cheaper per box and worth a lot more than that for my frustration. I don't know why I switched ammo, other than just wondering what the Winchester would do. Never again. The Winchester may look a little better on the ballistics chart, but my elk certainly never knew it. Bullet placement has ALWAYS been the most important thing in hunting - no matter the bullet, caliber or rifle. The most expensive ammo out there won't put your game on the ground if it doesn't hit the target. August 20, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by BHMonster Great Ammo! I have purchased these rounds for my Weatherby Vangaurd .243 and found that they hold a tight group. I zero at 200 yards and have consistant success with them. April 7, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by fsmii 300 WSM, 180gr in Africa The XP3 in 180gr for the 300 WSM performed flawlessly on my South African trip in 2007. Broadside shots on both a kudu and an eland resulted in flattened bullets just underneath the skin on the other side. Perfect! I also took out a zerbra and a springbok with single shots. The XP3 blasted clear through the springbok but a deep penetrating cartridge like the XP3 really wasn't meant for such a little antelope. (I wanted to go to Africa with maximum simplicity, one type of cartridge per rifle.) If I were to do it all again, I would carry the same ammo for my 300 WSM, no question! April 4, 2009

A:Depends if your rifle likes the ammo honestly. My 300 does great with it. Different rifles perform better with different ammo. It worked out well for me. I say buy a box and see how it suits you.
A:It shoots well in my rifle and it's bullet design is outstanding. After all of the expense of a hunting trip you don't want to go cheap on the ammo if it works for you. The only way you'll know if your rifle likes this ammo is to buy a box and shoot some.

A:For a sure kill, YES.
A:Yes & maybe... The thing everyone needs to realize about rifles is that they can be very particular about ammo. Two identical guns can shoot very differently with the same ammo. My Browning X-bolt .270 loves this ammo in 130 grain but shoots terrible with it in 150 grain. If you want precision from your rifle you really have to buy several brands and sizes to see if your gun shoots one better than another. If you're satisfied with 'close enough to hit a deer' then most anything will suffice.
As far as this bullet is concerned, I don't think there's a better performing bullet out there for medium to large game.
