I agree an exit hole might give a better blood trail. However I've never had to track one I shot with my .270 Win 130 grains. They either were laying where they were standing or less than 10 yards away. Guess I've been lucky with that. I used both handloads and factory. I used Hornady and Sierra bullets and never had a break up. Always near perfect mushrooms.

However the deciding factor for me is which one shoots the best from my rifle. I want the best accuracy with a bullet designed for the task be it 130 gr or 150 gr. My rifle loves 130 grains and will shoot sub .5 MOA at 100 yards if I do my part.

If you want an exit hole and 130 grain, probably the Nosler Partition would be a good choice as well as the Barnes TSX.
