Ya know, there is soo much opinion out there and some of it can be misconcieved notions and presuppositions mixed with gas station B.S. that it is tough to find what really is the true and reliable info. With that being said, I have paid attention to Field and Stream, petersons and outdoor life magazines and found there assesment of bullet choices to be reliable. A bonded bullet, no matter the manufacturer, is always going to have a penetration advantage over non bonded bullets (nosler partitions and A frames are the exceptions here). I just shot an antelope this last week with the hornady Interbonds and there was no sign of bullet fragmentation and I found no bullet pieces. This being said, I like them. You must try several bonded bullets and find which ones work best in your rifle. EJ

You're only shooting medium distances, so the ballistic tip bullets wouldn't be a great choice for deer IMO. They cost a lot and are designed for shooting very long distances; at 300yds and under, a traditionalbonded, or 'lokt' bullet would be a better choice for more effective penetration and wound channels. I agree with the recommendations for core-lokt, fusion,and interbond bullets. Partitions might cost more but are also something I would recommend.

For me..the ol plain box Classic Federals were always lethal and grouped better than anything else in my 270.
