Bullet Selection for 300 Win MAG

I am going on a MT Goat, Mt caribou, Mt Grizzly hunt. I am planning on using 300 win mag custom rifle. Any suggestions on a good bullet for this diversity of game would be appreciated.

    I will 2nd the 200 Nosler Accubond. Even for the Mt goat. Never underestimate how tough goats are to anchor.

    Because you mentioned griz, I'd opt for the following and in this order:

    200 TSX
    180 TSX
    200 AB
