I picked up a few boxes of these as blems for $13 and thought they'd be perfect for the RAR. They actually are a bit too pointed, as at 2.3" you are seated just past the ogive. They have a bc of  .305 which is pretty good for a 110. I emailed Hornady, they said they were developed for the Blackout, and are designed to expand as slow as 1600.

I started with IMR 4198, as it shoots great with the vmax. I found I had to keep the charges down and speeds down to about 2900 to keep the swipes and extractor marks down, it was really tearing up brass. Looking in the load books I decided to try Benchmark and I had a small amount in a can. Started at 39 and worked to 40, which is max for a 125 BT, and very compressed. But I'm happy with the results, speed averaged 3002 fps, and a 6 shot group measured .7" at 100 yards. A 3 shot group was slightly smaller in a stiff breeze yesterday. Pressure seems low, with no swipes. I'm out of powder for now but I think that should make a good deer load.

Anyone with real world experience with this bullet on game?

I have no experience with the gmx. I have not heard anything negative about them. I'm still using benchmark with the 125gr. Nbt

I like the ballistics of that 125, that's a pretty decent bc. What speeds are you getting?
