technically any copper and brass jacketed bonded soft point boattail bullet is going to be very accurate and have good weight retention.  That being said for factory loads not much better than remingtons corelokt bullets, but the hornady light magnums with their interbond bullets are a close second.

My shooting buddy loaded up some Barns X bullets (140 gr) with a Ballistic tip for my 7mm08.  In this caliber with the same bullet it went completely through and Elk bull.  I have this gun set up to shoot 3/4 groups at 100 yds.  I also like my 22-250

I am a new member from GA.  I shoot NRA sanction long distant events with my 308 ( 600 and 1000 yds)  I bow hunt until it gets to cold and I am a avid fisherman that like to flats fish in salt water with a fly rod --09--0

 4 me hands down hornaday sst in 12 ga or 20 ga both are worth their weight in gold. i sight in @ 50 yards and its good to 100 125 yards.
Its nice not having to think about yardage just put it on em and let it go.
@ 25 yards it hits 3/4 of an inch high no big deal.
and they are devastating on deer 2 deer 50-70 yards out both never made it past 50 yards easy tracking.
Aim small miss small.
God bless our troops

My favorite for Deer Hunting is my 7mm08 Winchester 140 Grain Ballistic Silvertip, Every deer I have ever shot with this round has went down right where I shot it! The key I think, Is to shoot them in the shoulder, not behind the shoulder!

Last year I switched from Rem Corelock to the FUSION. I am sold on Fusion. 270/130 grain dropped all 6 deer in their tracks.
