Have we run out of brands yet?
I like these type of threads. Variety is like spice; I like to see what others like, though I may never try it.

This is what I use for everything
.243 - 95 NBT killed antelope, deer and elk with it. works great been my go to for decades

2 years ago I got these to try
.308 - 168 VLD killed 3 antelope, 5 deer no elk yet
280AI - 150 NBT 1 bull elk, 2 bison

as others have said, there is little out there that won't kill stuff. I too like to see what others use and why.

I use the above because they can be found on sale at times. so I bite the bullet (pun intended) and I buy a bunch at once. they all shoot great out of their chosen rifles.
I've thought about dabbling with other bullets and loads, but I don't want to retart that process again. you're mileage may vary

260 Rem - 130 gr Accubond/140 gr Ballistic Tip (have used 129 gr ABLR, 130 gr Sierra HPBT, 140 gr G.S, Partition and Hor Cor and probably others, favourite deer round)

6.5x55 - 120 gr Ballistic Tip (have used 140 gr SST, Interlock and Partition)

264 Win Mag - 156 gr Oryx (have used 130 gr Scirocco and TSX)

270 Win - 150 gr Ballistic Tip (this year 150 gr Hot Cor just to experiment)

303 British -180 gr Speer RN and Hornady 150 gr Spire Point

35 Whelen - 200 gr Accubond (have used 225 gr Ballistic Tip)

I have used the 30-06 a fair bit with lots of different bullets but don't have one currently would look at 165 gr Speer's or Ballistic Tips first.
