when you say best do you mean take down power, penetration, or best as in least amount of meat spoiled?

I like the 180s for Mule deer since they are a bit larger than most whitetail. And i dont really mind spoiling some meat if it means knocking them down faster. I wouldnt trade those 180's in for anything they are my favortie round.
