Mine is a bolt action but it likes the LVR ammo too. I found the LVR powder bottle has 35 Rem load data on it using the 200gr FTX bullet. It nearly duplicates factory ammo velocity and accuracy. I carried mine last week while black bear hunting. While I didn't see any bears I certainly felt as if the rifle and load were up for the task. Can't really say how I would react to seeing a bear for the first time, but I've been in tight spots with a rifle before and performed just fine.
I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem
