Hello Kevin and welcome to our little home in cyberspace. Your question is one that leaves alot of room for speculation but in general given its for deer any well constructed bullet-several names come to mind (speer-hornady-sierra-winchester, etc.) will do a good job out to the range you should be shooting at with the 30-30. Both the round nose and flat nose will make a good choice but the round nose generally has a little bit better ballistic coeficient so if you want the best downrange ballistics that would be my choice.
Good hunting and shooting:
