1:10 twist rate, 22in barrel

I don't reload so does anyone have any favorite factory loads for deer out to say, 300 yds?
Which bullet weight would work best?

300y and less?... Any bullet weight from the 125 nosler BT to a 180gr will work.
dont use BTHP match bullets due to the fact they may not expand, but hornady 168/178 Amax are fine, personally i would use a all copper like the GMX or barns to keep the lead out the meat

I would experiment with hunting rounds starting with 180 grain bullets and going up from there. I would settle on the heaviest that shot the best groups. Those will be best suited for medium and larger game and should be the best performers for a 1:10 twist.
