I have reloaded 130 gr bullets in my 300 Win and found they struck at relatively the same point of impact as 100 yards as my pet 180 gr loads. I did not have them screaming out the barrel at 3700 fps. Slow or fast, it surprised me that the barrel twist which is likely 1 in 10" was able to stabilize the lighter bullet. Perhaps this is peculiar to my rifle but the 300 Win does have a reputation for firing different weights of bullets to same point of impact. The 30-06, on the other hand, often varies considerably with different bullets.
With the less than ideal twist rate, the poor ballistic coefficient of the stubby bullet and the high muzzle velocity you may find that the rounds are all over the target. If you can get it shooting accurately, it would be a devastating round on small whitetail and antelope as Taylor suggested.
