Usually,
30-06
Hornady Custom SST 180 grn
I've been thinking about swiching to the Light Magnum in 150 grn just to try something different.

If I'm gonna be in the brush I'll go to my 30-30 and use Winchester 150 grn Super X just because I happen to have a box left.

I am not too choosey when it comes to ammo for deer, and since my Savage 30-06, and .243 seem to shoot all of the bullets that I have tried wellI don't discriminate too much. I have grown fairly fond of the Hornady 150gr Interbond, and SST's for the 30-06 though.
