    The fact that it is a bolt action, I would start with the Lapua ammo and then reload the
    brass after fire forming with the bullet of your choice and based on what the rifle likes.

    Barret ammo is expensive but so is the Lapua so spend the money on Lapua .

    I'm not sure that any factory ammo will perform as well as reloads but if you try the
    Lapua ammo at least you have the best fire formed brass to load.
