    So many options out there you could almost close your eyes and grab whats on the shelf. I'm shooting 165gr Nosler Accubonds right now. They group very well out of my LMT MWS and also a Rem 700 5R with a 20" barrel I have. I've also shot Hornady's 178gr ELD-X and they group very well also. The Hornady 150gr Whitetail is a great low cost round. Basically pick your flavor and see what your rifle likes and your budget like the most.

    Hornady SST's are most accurate out of my gun. Lots of options will do, as others say.

    Most anything will work. Hell, i shot a 5x5 bull Elk, 405 yards with Federal 165 grain Trophy Bonded Bear Claw last fall.

    I've gotten one shot drops with those rounds and overall they seem to work very well.

    Pretty much any .308 round (excluding varmint or frangible) will kill a deer. Shot placement is the key!

    Get a round you are accurate with.
