What do most prefer when it comes to hunting rounds? I see a lot of post with the hornady sst, but are you guys using factory loads or reloads?

I don't reload, so I'm stuck with factory loads. The only deer I've killed with the 6.8 was with SST's. Deer was very much dead but those SST's are nasty if you hit a shoulder, and your not likely to get an exit. I have some GMX's I'll be trying this year.

The 115 gr federal fusions are a great round, a little slow but the bullet is bonded and doesn't cause meat damage...the 90 gr Gold Dot is the same bullet but faster

Nosler accubonds if you can find them. They work great and don't ruin a ton of meat. Most of the deer I have shot with them are drt.

Accubond, TTSX, GMX, or Fusion are preferred. Pro-Hunter will work, but results have been unpredictable. SST kills, but makes a mess.
