I shoot 465gr cast with a wide flat meplat in my SBL with excellent accuracy. The deer and elk can attest that it is a complete pass through and deadly round. I wouldn't be afraid to hunt anything in North America with this round. Do I drive it as fast as I can? Nope, it's not needed. And with a gas check on them there is very little clean up. So there is my vote.

Hey Gunman - here’s a pic of a group with the Cast Performance 405-grainers (with gas check). At 100 yards the groups open up a bit, but are still ”minute of deer.”
I get the same results with my own cast 405gr bullets at 100yds using IMR4198. That is a great target and they shouldn't open up much more at 100yds. Definitely will put meat in the freezer.
