Should work OK for those smaller southern deer. I used Hornady 87 grain spire points for many years on both coyote and deer with satisfactory results. That bullet was the older design with the "coke bottle" core that had a thickened jacket near the middle. It worked a lot like a Partition but didn't shed the front core as the partition often does. I would not expect full penetration nearly as often as with the 100 grain partition since there's not as much shank behind the partition on the 85.
