    Cannot say about the .30 cal 150 grain ballistic Tips but I found that the 165 Grain Nosler Ballistic Tips were fine on Roe and Muntjac.

    Glad to see you've got it at last! What do you think of it? I've been using 120 gn Norma BT's in my Varberger 6.5x55, and have been impressed so far.

    I used to use these in .308 before I re-barreled to 7mm-08 and they were very accurate and did the job but I found they bruised a bit and did cause more damage than other calibers or bullets weights.
    Try a heavier and slower bullet if you are concerned about meat damage. Also avoid BT's and stick to good old fashioned SP's, they are cheaper to start with and are just as accurate but don't go too light, keep them 165gr and above unless you load your own and just reduce the charge and run the 150gr'ers out a bit (no much) slower.
    You'll find that you'll still keep the MPBR at +-2"/3" out to 200 yards or more. . . depends, but more than adequate for hunting deer.
    Good luck
    The deer man
