Best projectile for long range with a 300 win mag

I have a surgeon built 300 win mag in a McMillan a-5 with a 27.5 Krieger barrel and night force nsx 8-32. I'm very new to magnums and reloading but plan on loading for this rifle I was thinking on Sierra 190 bthp. But don't want to dump a bunch of cash on bullets then find something that does better for this application.... Any advise?

Ditto shooting 190gr Berger Hunting VLD's. I believe the 190 grain bullet is best balanced for the .300 Win Mag. They are great for both paper and live game. The draw back is that they may not fit in a standard length (3.34") magazine.

The next rifle I build will be on a magnum length (3.65") action so I can load my VLD's with a 3.6" C.O.A.L.. Then I can get them in the magazine and don't have to single load. I also find the added case volume allows a 2.5" and 2.62" cases to give me near magnum length (2.85") case performance.
