    Any of the hot rod ~120gr will do.

    Barnes TAC-TX 110gr
    Remington Premier match 125gr
    Nosler ballistic tip 125gr

    I haven't shot this brand, but I've loaded the 125 Ballistic Tips and got great accuracy. I also load these @ 2350 fps in reduced velocity .308 Win for younger shooters.

    The bullets perform well at lower velocities. These should be worth a try.

    I'd opt for the 110 Barnes...shoot and feed perfectly in mine

    125 gr BT would also work

    I can't tell you personally about a deer, However I did shoot a Coyote this past Saturday with mine shooting the Remington 220gr. OTM. Ranged at 142 Yards, turned away, shot in the back of neck and bullet exited the chest area. It pretty much exploded. It was pretty nasty, by the looks of it I would say over kill for a deer. Im still gonna try it when I get the chance though.

    The 110gr Barnes is awesome, but anything in the 125-165gr range when loaded appropriately should do just fine.

    Everyone says the tsx Barnes is good. No frag but hard expanding impact.

    Oh yeah, the tsx will run you premium. You could load them for less but still come out at least $1.20 a round.
