Which bullet to try

Greetings,I am trying to decide which bullets to try next. I am working on developing a load for my 300wsm. Its a Sav. mod.11 and I just rebarrelled with a 26 inch Douglas from SSS. Right now I am not concerned about being able to feed from the mag. I do a lot of my deer hunting with a muzzle loader so a single shot is not a problem.. Anyway my needs are as follows, hunt in New York state both deer and bear,so far no luck on bears. I do have places I could possiblely get a shot out to about 700 yds. and at the moment my best groups have come with Sierra 165 btsp. So my question is what other bullets in the 165 - 168 size range are similar in shape and /or style . thanks for looking.
