Default Best .270 Deer load

If you reload for the .270 win its hard to beat 58gr of IMR 4831 with a 130gr slug. I have had great sucess with the 130gr barnes xbt(old style) but am almost out and will more than likely switch to the Nosler Accubond. Two years ago I shot a respectible buck at what turned out to be about 310 yds when a buddy lasered it later. One shot one kill stopped it in its tracks with a through and through shot hitting the oppisite shoulder bone. I held dead on. I sight my rifle 3" high at a hundred. What all this says to me is flat, fast, and plenty of bone crushing penetration.
