My grandfather always used Remington 150gr Bronze Points on Mule Deer All his kills were 1 shot in the neck & down it went.

Looks like Core-Lokts are the standard here. 150 grains.
A Colt Python's trigger pull is as smooth, beautiful and artistic as a Sidewinder sliding on the desert floor. It is concepts like this that the anti-gunners can never comprehend and why we fight so hard to keep them.

Any top tier 150 gr is an ideal load for whitetail in that caliber, although I learned to favor Nosler ballistic tips after having great experiences with them for my 8mm (180 gr).

For factory yep I don't think you beat a 150 core lok. I used to use them and they're great for the money. Last 20 years been reloading for 30-06 and load the 165 grain Hornady SSTs. Awesome plus you can tweak till you get a ragged hole instead if 3/4".
