???best Load For .270 Win????

I just bought my first Savage (with AccuTrigger) 111Bgl chambered in .270 Win. Just wanted some input on which loads I should shoot. I hunt a lot of open country and sometimes it requires shots up to 300+ yrds. I never like dialing long distance (anything over 200yrds) but if the time comes and I need to, I want to be confident that my selected load is going to do the job at 300 yrds. I was thinking that 130-140 grain should give me plenty of muzzle velocity but at 300+ yrds would I still have the knock down power to effectively take deer cleanly???
