For the highest velocity from a rifle, a slower powder such as H110, W296 or 2400 will do best. Fast burning pistol powders such as unique will work but their power curve is too short for the longer barrel. Any bullet your barrel will stabilize will work. I have found that 250-270 gr bullets work best out of my 18 inch Marlin 44 mag carbine.
