Phil beat me to it, I was going to suggest the Hornady SST or Interlock, I've had good results with them in 25-06 and .280 . Partitions are to pricey for any benifit unless your going after elk or so.I've also put a lot of whitetails down with Ballistic tips out of my .280's. 115gr or 120gr would be a good choice for up to 200yrds, then maybe drop down to 100gr,maybe.
A pass through shot puts much of the energy from you bullet into the trees or dirt behind the deer, where it does no good. To me a perfect shot is one that is stuck under the hide on the oposite side of the animal,but like you said, don't want it to shrapnel inside.
