Browning 300 Short Mag - best ammo for 150 yds

I have a Browning 300 Short mag - lever action and do not have a lot of shots through it. I am heading to Nebraska on a deer hunt and want to take this gun. The avg shots are 150 yds, any suggestions on ammo and grain?

I had great results with Fusion 165gr when I had my WSM.

Don't let our differences defeat us.

For deer anything in the 165 grain range is optimal. You good velocity and energy and the range will be there in case you need to exceed that average range. Good luck!

Went with the 165 Hornady - anxious to shoot them in and see what happens.

Where did you get your Hornady WSM ammo? I was under the impression that they didn't make it. I have a Savage Model 11 that is real picky. So far, I've found the Barnes VortX works best in mine but really want to try Hornady since some of my other rifles love it.

I dont belive Hornady makes 300wsm ammo. If so, please let us know where.
