Part of the bullet selection depends upon what you want the bullet to do and at what range.
If you want to be sure of maximum expansion and immediate kill that would be one thing. If you want to minimize the amount of meat damage that would be another. As you probably know here in the east if a bullet does not kill pretty quickly on public land you may lose it to another hunter.
This eastern whitetail was shot at about 50 yards with a Nosler 160 AB with a muzzle velocity over 3000 fps. Even though the bullet went through both shoulders it was the least amount of meat damage of any 7mm bullet I have ever shot a deer with.
