Yep. Savage 111 in 7mm-08. I've been shooting the Federal Fusion in 140 grain set to hit about 2 inches high at 100 yards, which gives me a spot on hold out to 300 or so yards.

Best shot was around 250 yard quartering away, went in behind the ribs, shredded the lungs and I found the bullet perfectly mushroomed under the hide on the far side. So far I had 4 shots and got 4 deer. I think it's a winner.
