I have used the 100 grain Sierra SP successfully on game past 200 yards. This bullet was recovered from a whitetail taken with a 14" Contender chambered in 257 Raptor. This is a 204 Ruger necked up to 25 caliber. The deer was standing broadside at a lasered and witnessed 269 yards. The bullet entered just below the heart and was recovered in the offside shoulder. The deer traveled 30 yards and expired. Velocity was 2574 fps at the muzzle.

At the non +P 257 Roberts velocities, these classic cup and core bullets perform very well. My son hunts with a rechambered small ring Mauser shooting the Speer 120 grain Hot Cor at around 2550 FPS. The terminal performance on whitetail has been superb.
