My hunting mentor swears by the .270 and .140 grain hornady bullets. I agree. To me this is the ultimate combo for deer.

Another vote for the 140 grain Hornady BTSP Lt. Mag. IMHO you can't beat it.

I like 130 grain remington core lokt. I have killed 10 or 15 deer with them out to about 100 yards drops them in there tracks.

I don't really know of a bad one. Just depends on what bullet your rifle likes. (groups best with)

130gr Winchester Ballistic Tips
140gr Winchester AccuBond
130gr Winchester Power Point
130gr Winchester Power Point Plus

130gr Hornady SST's
130gr Remington Core Lokts (or 150gr.)

Any of the Federal loads.

Personally, in my rifle, the Ballistic Tips were the most accurate. This year I am shooting the AccuBonds.

I really can't really think of any .270 bullet that wouldn't work at 150yds. 150yds isn't far for a .270 at all.

I used the Federal 130 grains last year and they performed well.

I'll have to agree with most of the previous posts, the 130 or 140 gr. in just about any brand will drop deer effectively with a well placed shot. The 140 gr. with a Boat Tail design will maintain downrange velocities better than the 130 gr.

I would opt against using a ballistic tip because they tend to fall apart to quick if you hit a shoulder or rib. One good bullet that stays together for good is the Combined technology Failsafe. Loaded by winchester in their supreme line. Winchester Supreme Failsafe 140gr. This bullet will penetrate both shoulders on any deer you shoot it at muley or whitetail. It retains near 100 percent of its weight and still expands just as well as every other bullet on the market. Man i love this round. If you use it you will too.
