the cartage should easily be accurate out to 500 yards, the rifle and the shooter are the determining factors of what your maximum range with that round is

As a new hunter I would encourage you not to worry about the maxium effective range of the cartridge. Unless you have a good bit of shooting skill behind you, the max effective range of the cartridge will greatly exceede your ability to use it. Work on that! And have fun. Thumbs up
