I don't hunt, or use factory ammo...
But, I do shoot the Hornady A-Max in several rifles as a match target bullet- and they can also be used as a hunting round due to their composite tips that will cause expansion.

I would try the 155 and 168 A-Amax to see how they group out of your rifle.

Trying to stick to one particular round of ammunition isn't a good idea, IMO...

If you're precision target shooting- particularly at longer ranges, you need match target ammo. Usually requires quite a bit of experimentation to see what your rifle likes for best accuracy- and that probably isn't going to be a hunting bullet...

Minute-of-deer accuracy at a few hundred yards max can often be accomplished with much less expensive ammo.
