The old School SKS's are alright if you can shoot. I took a Mule Deer buck just shy of 600 yards with one using open sights about 20 years ago. Started low and walked them in, he was in a open sage creek bottom bellow me. Round number 5 dumped him. Holes kill crap, it's a simple concept. Most just over think it. vitamin "R" and a good spotter works wonders.   

It wasn't even my rifle. When I went to hand it back to my Buddy. He said "Screw you, you can pack it. If I have to pack half that damn deer."  All I said is you got that $100.00 bucks on you or do I have to drive you by a cash machine when we hit the pavement.

We never really knew for sure the range on that shot until 10 or so years later. We were in the same spot and had a range finder and ranged it.

The Lehigh Custom 250gr Controlled Fracturing .375 bullets shot well. Yorke's posts about the "Hammer" bullets. Got me to their website, so I ordered up several bullet weights to try in my .375 Raptor.

.375 256gr "Sledge Hammer" (Left)
.375 248gr "Hammer Hunter" (Right)

Yes, they are. I'm switching all of my hunting guns over to these instead of the Accubonds and Barnes bullets that I've been using. It's not that I have any problems with either the Nosler or Barnes bullets, these just seem to be the best of both worlds. They shoot as well as or better than every other bullet I've tried in all of my guns and they perform like a Barnes bullet does on impact. They shoot well enough that I use the heavy 338s as target bullets in my 338/408 Improved pistol.
