Sierra soft point.
They have always been accurate, even in my old military barrel.
In my new match grade barrel they are great.
At over $3.00 a gallon for gas, I want it leaded, 100 octane, and my windshield washed!

up til now, I have shot Wolf Gold and Federal 150 gr. factory loads.  The federals are ok, but rather pricey, the Wolf's sorely lack hitting power and cost us two deer last year.  Decided to reload last year and got some Hornady 150gr. SP INTERLOCKs and had good success with them.  The 150's, in general, have been a really good load for us.  I have a few left and plan to use them for pronghorn.  I wasn't able to get 150's this year, but was able to pick up some Hornady 174gr. RN INTERLOCKs and am going to try them for deer in the woods this year.  I like the 150s best, but can't get them at least for now.  I have to work up a load for the 174s and see how they will work.  Was wondering where a guy can get 125gr., I'd like to try them on deer and pronghorn myself.

The 30-30 cartridge is famous as a deer gun, and the .303 performs like the 30-30 so id say it would be fine.

I use 150s and it works on everything ive tried it on
