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.

I like the 180 TXS in my 300 win mag they are very accurate and will work for any size game I am shooting win cases,federal 215 primers,81 grains of H-1000 for 3075 fps and .3 moa I took an Antelope at 777 yards that dropped in it's tracks with this load on 10-06-05 of this year

Re: Bullet Selection for 300 Win MAG

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

200 TSX
180 TSX
200 AB
