My favorite load uses 53.4 grains of IMR 4350 with a Midway bulk packed 130 grain Core Lokt bullet.

It is the most accurate and the Core Lokt bullet has never failed to take a deer down. In load testing it average 0.542 over a number of groups at 100 yards with a best group of 0.347.
The key to accuracy with the Core Lokt was setting the COAL back about as far as the factory ammo. The ogive with the more blunt point is then about where the more pointy bullets wind up relative to the rifling.

Nosler Ballistic tips are also very good but like the load a bit faster. I do have one Nosler load that might be more accurate than the Core Lokt but I haven't shot enough groups with it to state that with any certainty.
