On light skinned game like a whitetail, I think I'll take the 150 gr every time. Theoretically, the 150 will expand sooner than the 165 gr. 165 gr will get you more penetration prior to expanding. Now on a 325 lb Canadian beast whitetail, I'll choose the 165 or maybe even the 180 gr.

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!!
I believe I would try Tiny's load ;\) ........that is some good shooting.


Well who Iam I to disagree with the good Doctor. \:D Thanks.

Lawdog, 150gr myself.

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

If its a remington 700 I recommend a 165gr nosler NBT or Partition over 56.0 H414 with the bullet seated at 3.810" which is .010" off the lands. My CDLSF LOVES this combo. Consistant 1/2" groups at 104yd every time.
