Esentially Premium vs Regular.
Select plus is loaded with premium brand name, higher BC hunting bullets and seem to be loaded a bit faster.
Select uses Norma’s own manufactured bullets at slightly lower velocities.

I've been using Weatherby Spitzer ammo (cheaper ammo) with great success on Whitetail & Mule deer.  The reason I bought this ammo is that it was cheaper to buy the loaded ammo than virgin brass.  This way I hunt with ammo, and then I'll have brass shot in my rifle to reload.  ;D

I load & reload my own but as PARA45 pointed out it's as cheap and sometimes cheaper to buy loaded Select ammo than just the brass. The Select ammo I bought in 240 & 257 shot very well and would probably work fine for deer and hogs but I'm but sure I'd use a cup & core type bullet at Weatherby velocities on bigger game.
