Want to pick a few factory loads to try in my Ruger American, 22" barrel. Anybody got any recommendations on what to try? Should I go 120 or 140 gr? Main quarry will be central TX whitetails, possibly pigs at some point too.

I will always pick the heavier bullet over the lighter one.

140 fedral fusion has proven very deadly and accurate for me.

Hornady and Fed Fusion were my go-to's for my 7mm-08. Oddly enough, the most accurate factory round what the Prvi Prvatie 140 grain. It was also the cheapest
