Thanks for any help you all could offer.
One point to ponder is where you live and where do you hunt.
Bullets are just like automobiles, some can get 40 mpg while others goes really fast - but might only get 12 mpg.
If you live in the south and the deer are not very large, then you do not need any type of premium bullet to shoot a deer.
If you lived in the north - such as Maine and had deer that were 200+ lbs in weight - then a better bullet would work better.
There has been some production issues as of late with Remington coreloct ammo and you would be better off to buy one of the cheap offerings from Winchester or Federal.
Federal Fusion 140 gr - Federal Fusion Ammunition F280FS1, 280 Remington, Fusion Ammunition, 140 GR, 2990 fps, 20 Rd/bx Ammunition To Go : 20rds - 280 Rem. Federal Power-Shok 150gr. Soft Point Ammo [280B] - $27.95
That is all the more ammo you will ever need for deer.
