Any good quality 165 or 180 grain in the right place will do the job. But considering the investment in a hunt (travel, tags, out of state license, vacation etc) I only load Partitions. 40 years of loading 100 gr n .243, 125 and 140 in 6.5-06, 150 and 180 in .30-06 and 225 in .338 Win. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Back when I could afford mulie and elk tags on the same trip I used the .30-06 with 180 Partitions. Nothing hit walked away ( I did have range estimation issues early on). Now I use a .54 flintlock with a patched roundball and get close.
There may be some theoretical advantage to other products over Partitions maybe even something with a minuscule measurement of an obscure meaningless parameter. Partitions just work and are plenty accurate in my rifles.
The answer is FLINTLOCK! Now, what was the question?
