No, it is not a magnum. However, they are good ammo especially for the price. Under 1 moa at 300 yards for a 10 shot group with a Savage 110ba rifle and Trijicon 5-20x50 scope. I would highly recommend for distances of 1000yds or less.

Absolutely! It's good for any deer anywhere. . I would assume you can use them on hogs as well. We don't hunt hogs where I live, but I know they'll work for deer. I use 100 gr exclusively. There probably inexpensive because of cheaper foreign labor. The quality is first rate. Give 'em a try! Hope this helps. Good hunting to you guys.

answer 1
The spce projectiles I have found to be good for hunting. the front part of the projectile is able to mushroom while still keeping enough mass to deliver an effective amount of energy to the target. With that being said, I have only used them on coyotes and nothing larger, however I have known people to use them on deer effectively. Personally I find the accuracy to be alright, but nothing to write home about so I prefer to use something more accurate for hunting larger game, especially if it means the difference between a clean kill shot or having to track the deer for 100 yards.
The spce bullet should not damage a rifle barrel in any way, i've shot my fair share of these and have yet to have any issues with my barrel.
