    Any of them would be fine. Just as a note you can get three boxes of the 165 for the same price as two boxes of the more expensive ones.

    I would go for the 156 or 180 grain just cause that is what I usually shoot in 30 cals.

    More range time will matter more. JMO.

    Default which bullet

    Of course the one that your rifle shoots best. The best bullet is of little use if it is not accurate. If all the listed bullets are equally accurate then my first choice would be the 180 gr. bonded bullet, esp. here in Alaska.

    Well if you could afford it when reloading any of the premium bullets you would get acceptable accuracy when trying enough powders and loads and as I said you would finally get what you want. But in saying that it would take a lot of time and trouble. So what to do?? Use a good powder Like RL-22, H4831, and like powders and pick a couple of premium bullets you like and then use the one that preforms the best. I would try Nosler Accubond and Barnes TSX these are two exceptional bullets and they both will not fail you.

    My 300 WSM and 300 Win Mag really like the 180gr Nosler Accubond...
