Best long range 30 caliber bullet.

I am looking for a good long range load for a 300 win mag. I am hunting tn whitetail that are generally from 95 to 180 lbs. Any suggestions? I have bought the Federal Premium 165 Barnes TSX to try this year. I really haven't had time to handload lately. If you know anything about them let me know as well.

    220 Sierra Match King, but would maybe step down to the 210gr or the 190gr for the 300 Win mag. Hope this helps, on deer they are the BEST!!

    Don't overlook 210 gr Bergers or JLKs. I have shot some 210 SMKs out of mine, and they shoot great; however, they lose their bc rapidly as they slow. Other similar SMKs, 200 or 220 gr, would be a much better choice. Last but not least, 200 gr NABs are also pretty good for LR work.

    most have good results with the 190 SMK and the 300 win mag.
