Combining my work with both and here is what I would suggest:

Try 110TTSX or 95TTSX as fast as you can go, they will probably stabilize better.
At .5 grains over book max (Barnes book and Nosler website) for all 3 powders, they run at about 3050 to 3120 fps with no pressure signs. But since I'm over book max, I'm don't want to run any more powder. It is a new M70 with 1:10 twist. IMHO 95 or 110 TTSX are too light for whitetail. I want to push at least a 130 grain bullet. Just my opinion.

Marksman66: I thoroughly clean the barrel after each trip to the range (20 to 30 rounds). I shoot 4 to 6 fouling rounds before shooting groups: yes it takes that many fouling rounds before they settle down. I use Boretech carbon and copper remover until there is no black or very much blue (copper) on the patches. Yes it is a wood stock, but there is plenty of free space between the barrel and the stock. Yes, bedding is one thing I may have to do.

My first hand experience is the 110 TSX is deadly on deer. It's all my brother uses and has used for about a decade now and he kills several every year. Hunters use 6mm bullets annually to kill whitetails that weight less than 110 gr.

If 95 or 110 are too small, time to rebarrel. 300 RUM is what I'd suggest.

I use 110 grs TTSX on my voere .270 win, 61.8 grs of WW N160.
One of my friend with this load shot a deer that was about 450 lbs last week at 150 yards, result was perfect ! great bullets !!

I strongly suggest getting a bedding job on your gun. This will noticeably increase the accuracy on your rifle.
