Default 223 Hunting Ammo

I bought a new Colt 6920MPB and now looking into using it for deer/hog hunting here in Florida. I have been looking at a few types of ammo and now I have found 2 brands I want to try. I'm looking for more info and other types of ammo out there. I really like Hornady, but I want at least a 60+ grain bullet(hard to find for me).

I found the Federal Fusion( Heard both good and bad)

Winchester Ballistic Silver tip 50 grain (Heard more good than bad by far.

Any suggestions. Thanks.

What RR said is spot on, if you are looking for factory loads you might want to check out Winchester Razorback Xt 223 Ammo. They are designed for wild hogs, which are alot tougher than a deer. I beleive they are built using Winchester Fail Safe bullets (like the Barnes TSX). They are a 64gr. H.P.
