    Many years ago I did a lot of deer killing with a little Rem. 760 pump and the best performing ammo was factory Winchester 100 grain Power Points. Brings back some interesting memories of shooting deer from a Bell 206 chopper with that little rifle. One of the best "runs" resulted in nine dead deer in well under a minute - got pretty frantic but I had spare clips loaded and the pilot was incredible. Another great hunting bullet is the 95 Nosler partition, used to use 4831 because it was cheap.
