Ball ammo will do the job, just be sure to hunt responsibly. If you are hunting wide open areas they'll be fine. I hunt IL farm land and there's usually homes within a mile or two. The soft points will break up on impact whereas the ball ammo has a higher risk of ricochet. I use 55gr vmaxes in a 1:7 twist 16" barrel.
