If it's just for deer than really any bullet will do just fine.

I start with the cheapest, plane jane, lead bullet and go from there. If the cheapest gives you the accuracy you are looking for then stop there and go hunting.

Remington corelokt, Federal blue box, Winchester power points, Federal fusion, etc... They will all kill any deer from the smallest Florida buck to the biggest Canada buck.

Cool

As long as it is in the 130 grain range, cause that was why the 270 was made for the 130 grain

Default .270

I all ways used a 130gn Hornady sp. Liked to load it with 56.0 gns of IMR 4350. Never had a whit tail or a mule deer stake more than a step or two. Shocking power was great.

Having said that, if I were still hunting I would like to try the Barnes.

Yep!

I used these in the 150 grain for years and loved them. The rifle is my spare now, but this year I dropped down to the 130. Great price and great bullets.

Agree with this. But if you like spending extra money to say that you shoot some fancy bullet at deer, then be my guest. I always try all the $20 per box rounds I can to see which one my gun like the best and just go with them. And no matter what anyone says on here, your gun will shoot different with certain bullets even if it's the same make and model as someone else.

Asking what bullet people like is like asking whether someone like Chevy or Ford (or other truck) around here. Everyone has an opinion and a reason why they like what they like. I just go with what works for me and the only way to do that is to try it out.
