Partition gets my vote for a big animal for the cartridge.

Using the Sierra Infinity Suites ballistics program, the 95g Berger beats everything else if you can push the to 3100 fps. According to Chris Hodgdon that is doable using 43 g their Hybrid 100v powder.
I've used this powder in my 257 Roberts and it did give an extra 100 fps more than anything else I tried.
Next on my agenda is to do a ladder test using this combination.
