Best Ammo for my new GAP Non-typical .300 WSM?

My new GA Precision Non-typical in .300 WSM should be in in a couple weeks, and I am trying to decide on what ammo to run through it. I will use it only for hunting anything and everything from deer to moose. I do not reload. HSM's Berger Hunting VLD in 185 grains seems to be my front runner. Any thoughts, advice, experience anyone has is really appreciated?!?!?

    So what do you mean "non-typical"?

    "nontypical" is just their name for their hunting version.

    ^^ Thats what I was thinking as well...

    To the OP, you are putting a severe handicap on yourself & probably your rifle by not reloading, my thinking is if you can drop a couple large on a GAP why not a few hundred on reloading equipment? I'm not trying to be mean, just curious.

    Give the HSM a try it can't hurt, at very least you will get some trigger time, I don't know jack about the Bergers so I'll leave that to someone else.

    Some of the custom ammo makers used to offer a "sample pack" if you will, a box of different loads to present the ability to find what your rifle likes best. I'm sure someone still does this, it might be worth your time to look into.
