I have not but that Hornady round should do the trick along with a bunch of RL19(I load 95 gr Noslers). 80 grain ttsx, I believe you can get 3300 FPS with that bullet, it ought to do the job.

I killed my best buck with an 80 gr ttsx but it was out of a 25-06. The deer was nearly facing me, I shot him in the front shoulder which it broke then the bullet exited the other side just in front of his hip. I am a big fan of barnes bullets.
