The first bullet I always try is Sierra Game Kings or Pro Hunter bullets. The next I try is Nosler Ballistic Tips. If I can not get one of these three to fly accurately then I look for other problems. I think I get the best bang for the buck from the Sierra's. The Nosler's are a bit more expensive.

I see no need what so ever for the custom bullets for deer. Just not needed if you hunt with an adequate cartridge to start with. Tom.

If I don't have the old pre-BT Nosler Solid Base in the caliber-weight I'll use the Sierra PH or GKs.

I've always had good luck with Rem. Core-Lokt's & Hornady Interlocks for deer. Don't know if a premium bullet is necessary. I remember years ago trying Nosler Partitions in my 6MM and getting less than spectacular accuracy. Speer's, Hornady's and Sierra's seemed to shoot better in that rifle at the time. That was close to 30 years ago though, maybe they're better today?

Is the hype founded with some of these premium bullets today? I read everywhere that Accubonds are the rage. Are they worth the extra price, for thin-skinned game like deer? I would be interested to know.

All I shoot are ballistic tips. For chucks I use core locks. I have ballistic tips in all of my cals....243,270,30-06 35 rem,30-30 and so on.I have never lost an animal I had shot and I never had one run more than 30 yards. Thats why I stick to them.

Remington Core-Lokt or Hornady Interlock are the bullets I almost always go to for deer loads in pretty much any caliber. 110gr Accubond's in 25 cal do a great job around 2800fps too. I simply don't shoot many deer past 200 yards(two in my life) so a round nose bullet almost always gets the assignment as well.

Loggy, hows the Oryx working for you? I was going to order them off the internet, because I can't find any around me.

BrownTrout...I ordered on net. Hard to find US mfg factory rounds loaded to the Swedes optimum. The Norma's are very accurate premium bullets.

Hornady SST's or the plain Hornady interlocks - in all of my deer handloads. 350 gr. Hornady flat points in the 45-70

If I use factory loads, usually corelokts
