Bullet recommendation for 300 win mag

Hey everyone, I just bought a savage long range hunter in 300 win mag, they say 26" barrel, about 24" is actually used cause of break I would imagine. Anyhow it has a 1 in 10 twist and was wondering where you guys would start out in regards to bullet weight and type. I plan to hunt deer and elk with this rifle, then obviously paper.
Thanks in advance for the help

    Nothing under 180gr. The heavier the better for long shots.

    If you really want to ring it out, I would stay with 200 to 210 range. No need to go heavier. The Nosler Accubond 200, Hornady 208 A-max or BTHP, Sierra 210SMK, or Berger 210. All these will give you the punch you are looking for and the ability to open at lower velocities down range.
