      A 150 or 165 grain bullet weight should be good. There are a lot of good bullet manufacturers out there. Something with a soft point, Nosler Ballistic Tip, or Sierra Gameking (to mention a few) should be good. Stay away from full metal jacket type bullets. You shouldn't need anything like Swift A-frame or Nosler Partition for deer. Good luck and good hunting!

        I hunt with a 165 grain core lockt bullet by Remington. This load seems to expand just right(unlike a Nosler which seems to expand to much)

            With any .30 caliber gun I like to use a 150 gr. Spear Point. I personally shoot Hornady but also would recommend Remington Core-Lokt as well.

              Thanks everyone! Sounds like the Remington Core-Lokt is the crowd favorite, I'll give it a shot.

                I have hunted with a .30-06 since I was 12 years old and I am now 78. Used Winchester 150gr ammo all
                those years and it never failed me. Also a few handloads along the way uning 150gr bullets. An escellent cartridge.

                  Remington Express corelokt 150 grain is what I use in my Remington.
