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.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

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
