120gr Sierra Pro Hunter with min. charge of IMR 4064 or IMR 4350 @ 3000fps for a reduced recoil load.

120gr Nosler Ballistic Tip with lots of R22 @ 3350-3550fps. Very accurate, but these did not expand in coyote. Exit hole as big as entry hole. Coyote died instantly nonetheless. Try the V-Max 120gr for expansion. If you want a flat shooting deer round, then the Nosler BT should work.

139gr Hornady SST with lots of R22 @ 3150fps. Really like the SST for hunting in 270 Win, 7mm Mag and 308 Win. SST is very accurate.

162gr Hornady Interlock with 70gr of R25 (MAX LOAD). Shoulder hurts: yours and the animal's. R22 might be better.

168gr Sierra MK with 68.5gr R25 (MAX LOAD). Never got these to shoot as well as other combos, but I found the max. I did 69gr and 69.5gr and accuracy got worse, and shoulder hurt more. Brass and primer didn't look too bad.

Win brass. I prep these as much as my match .223, but not weight sorted.

215M primer. But also moved to CCI 250 since Federal so hard to find. CCI primer was harder to pop than the Fed. So I took my rifle to 'smith and he fixed the issue.

My hunting load is
180VLD on 68g of Retumbo lit by 215M in fed or WW brass. .010 off the lands. Routine for 1-1.5" at 300 yards

168 VLD 64g of RL22 same brass and same primers but .080 off the lands!!

FWIW I've never had a load that shot well jammed in the lands. By jammed i mean .010 into the lands. Also I find my gun shoots better just under 3000 fps. I can run it faster (not with the 180's) but accuracy suffers a bit. I'm not taking full advantage of the magnum cartridge but it works.
