    which is the best bullets for red deer?

    There's so many to choose from, but I like 130gr Hornady Soft Points for everything but the largest stags. Even then it is all about shot placement.

    aaahhhhhh you could have opened a can o worms with that question...

    almost as bad as the what caliber for reds query....hehehehehee

    as said ..there are a lot to choose from......
    BUT...
    you shouldnt under any circumstances include "varmint" style bullets for deer as they may possibly break up on impact rather than give you penetration & expansion...resulting in a not dead deer with injury resulting in a slow death.....posibbly.....and not what you want...

    again like your barrel question....

    pick the barrel that will suit your main typ of shooting.....and pick your bullet and typ with regard to your intended quarry

    Oh dear ......................... I brought a box of 6mm 100 grain partitions and well no matter what load I tried it was like a shot gun pattern. Vowed then not to waste my money in future.

    Teach me to look and not be is so much of a hurry with bullet shopping next time .
