they kill stuff.
accurate.
good rifle and chambering. if you handload, try rl-17 and 165 grain hornadys - that should put you on the path to happiness.

I have a BLR with a 4-12x40mm Leupold VX-1 on it. Only shot 20 rounds of Winchester Super-X 180gr PSPs and managed 1" groups before the barrel was really broken in. Nice shooting caliber. Most/many will say an unnecessary caliber, and while maybe true, it is still great on deer, fun to shoot and IMHO, marginal on recoil. You don't want to sit at the bench and shoot all day, but it is less than a 300 WIN MAG, and at most, equal to an '06.

Reloading for this round, however, is a whole different story and has been a frustrating exercise for me.
