You'd be hard pressed to beat a 240g Hornady XTP JHP sitting on top of 23.0g of WW296 using a mag primer. I've shot a good number of deer with this load and it has almost always made two holes...one in and one out. It has expanded well on the few I've recovered. Shooting it in a single shot rifle will give you a little heads up with the recoil.....noticeable, but manageable.
