I have great luck with Nosler Ballistic tips and Combined Technology and Accubond bullets in the 140 grain range. My experience is that the Accubond is a tougher constructed bullet for anything you may dump inside 250 yards. The accuracy with the Combined technology has been phenomenal but will come apart when you hit bone on game at closer ranges, I have stuck with them as we tend to shoot game in the 3 to 600 yard range in the last several years.
I have recently started working up loads with 150 and 160 grain pills, as the 140's are running to fast to allow my rapid retical scope.
