What grain bullet do you prefer for whitetails? 150, 165, 180, or 200? I'm thinking that the 165 would be a good choice, but what do I know. Thanks!!

150 and 168 work great. I couldn't tell any difference in the two really.

The 165 and 168s have always been my favorites.

I shoot the Hornady 165's, my model 70 loves those. Figures too, one of the most expensive rounds out there but they do well for me

Never had a problem with Core-Lokt 150s. Do what I need them to for around here.

I've started using Federal Fusion 165 gr. I used to shoot Core-lokt 165s but the Federals hold a tighter pattern. I shot 2 deer with them this year and neither went over 50 yards.

Try different types out at different ranges and see wich one you and your gun likes the best. It is all a personal choice.

Thanks!![/quoteI've never hunted whitetails with 200gr, but the other three work just fine. I started with 180 then went to 150 and settled on 165. However, all of that is just playin' around, because starting with 150 you end up with graveyard dead deer with each. And after all, that's the object. lol
