If you load to maximum velocity for the STW then yes, the bullet will more than likely rip itself apart too quickly.

Since you are handloading, you can lower the velocity to a much more sedate level and use the bullet you want. A 154 gr bullet at 2900 fps at the muzzle will kill white tail deer just fine, even out to 300 yards.
