For all around work for mule deer, sheep/goat and elk/moose?

165 grain or 180 grain ?

I'd say it depends on what bullet you choose. All 180s are not created equal, nor are 165s.

...and after further consideration, either a 180-grain Partition or a 165-grain Partition is what I'd choose. Leaning toward the 180.

Id go heavy, regardless, but your range will make a difference as to which specific bullet. Id probably shoot a Partition or Accubond for short to medium ranges. Beyond that, an ELD-X.

100-300 yards on 90% of shots

I think its going to be hard to beat an Accubond. Its something you can stretch out there a ways when needed, but is a solid killing bullet. I use different bullets for different things, but for a serious western gun, like your .300, theres no doubt Id load up a heavy Accubond and never look back.

I hunt muledeer with a 150 gr Scirocco II. I've shot 5 MD with that bullet in ranges 80, 110, 225, 315, and 413. All ranges verified with a rangefinder. None of the deer required more than one shot. I like the 150 due to the flat shooting capabilities. I'm going to load ELD-X 172 gr for an elk hunt this year.

180 AB is a good one. I like heavier bullets in the WM, so a 200 ELD-X or the 212 ELD-X would be awesome. I've seen real good results on the 212 ELD-X out to 800 yards on game. A 190 or 210 VLD-H is bad medicine, also.

215 berger hybrid is another good option if you can stabilize it.

I was thinking accubonds as well.

Probably go that route.
