I prefer the Seirra 87 gn. bullets for varmints. It does not blow them up like the 75 gn. bullets, but shoots alittle flatter and does the job. For deer size game eather of the 100 gn bullets or eather of the 117 gn bullet work well. Just use the Sierra manual and use what shoots best in your gun.

I`ll just tell you the bullets I prefer. I shoot a 257 AI and like the Sierra 87 gn. best for varmints. Their 75 HP are also great and blow up more especially at longer ranges, but the 87`s shoot a little flatter and are good killers. I never hunted big game with mine but did load up some Sierra 117 gn. bullet for a friend when I loaded him my gun to go antlope hunting. He got 1 shot at alittle over 400 yrds and bang flop the hunt was over, or so he told me.
