Default 130 grain vs. 150?

I've had a beautiful Remington Model 700 .270 handed down to me from a family member, so I'm looking for ammo. I've seen that 130 grain bullets generally have a little more velocity and power than the 150's. Is there any big difference between the two? I've only ever used 150s in my old 30-30. I usually don't shoot more than 100 yards, but if the opportunity arises, will a 130 take a buck down cleanly at 100-150 yards?

I've got four in mind right now:
Fiocchi 270HSB (150)
Hornady 140gr SST
Winchester Supreme Elite XP3 (in 150 or 130)
Federal Premium VitalShok (w/ 140gr Trophy Bonded Bear Claw)

Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
