Yup! Using my Omega Z5. Leupy 2x7 VX1 in QR mounts, .430 240gr Hornady XTP HP, Harvester sabots over 70 gr 3f T7 lit by Variflames( CCI small rifle primers) .Very accurate and terminal performance is as advertised..extreme. got 2 does with it in our early muzzleloader season. My daughter uses a Traditions Tracker exclusively and has 2 deer to her credit.
I don't hunt where rifles are legal, but my shotgun hasn't gone out the last 2 years....usually I carried the shotgun for close range and the ML for long range but I have a close range ML now so the shotgun stays home.
If rifles were legal I'd be really torn. I'd probably switch depending on the day. I really love making real smoke though.
I really think if it was a choice between ML and shotgun that I'd choose ML. For some reason I just can't leave the 7mm in the safe once rifle season comes around. Where I hunt shots are usually quite close so it doesn't really matter one way or the other.
