300RUM bullet choice

I'm interested in opinions on what is the best bullet/weight for a 300RUM to be used in long range hunting.
Thanks in advance. Rob

I use the Cutting edge C21 180 grain bullet with 97.5 grains of retumbo. I get a bc of right at .6 with it at 3470 fps out of my 1-10 twist 28" barrel. Run the ballistics and you see why I use it. It performs very well on game.

The Berger 210 or 230 works well also.
