160 accubond +5
Unless you want to give the 150 sciroccos a try, although:
1. they usually do not group as well as the nosler accubond
2. less reliable in my opinion

Sciroccos however tend in my experience to expand more.- also and as a consequence less penetration.

Another option would be to talk to R. Graves -wildcat bullets- and see if he can already come up with a bonded rbbt 160 grainer. Until recently he could not make bonded bullets in the RBBT configuration.
