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** some folks are simply educated beyond their intellegence

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.Better Than Most, Not As Good As Others.

The 110gr Barnes is awesome, but anything in the 125-165gr range when loaded appropriately should do just fine."Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless." - Kenny Powers

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.
