Default LXX of Jesus' Day

How can it be demonstrated that the LXX of Jesus' day included the deuterocanon?

I just Googled "Jesus quotes deuterocanonical" and found plenty of links for anyone who is curious.

I've tried the references Jesus and the Apostles make to the deuteros to no avail. Some protestants just won't accept them.

The fact that protestants don't accept them is irrelevant. They basically don't accept most of the Church's teachings either.

The Dead Sea Scrolls have three of the seven deuterocanonical books of our canon, which establishes a reasonable benefit of assumption for all seven books and even for all the books in Orthodox canon (though not to state their canons are valid.)

Dave Armstrong in his book "100 Agruments against Sola Scriptura" presents over 25 references of the LXX from the Gospel of Matthew alone (I do not have the book with me, so I don't know the exact number but it is widespread in that particular gospel). In that Chapter he only presents the Gospel of Matthew. I haven't read the second half of the book.
