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?

I just got 200 accubond nosler, 190 smk, 210 vld and probly gonna test some 215 hybrids with h-1000 and rl 22.... Any thoughts?
If you plan on using the rifle to hunt with, make sure if you use Bergers, to use ones specifically marked HUNTING. The hybrids, and target models will NOT make good game hunting bullets, same goes for any match bullet unless it's designed as a match hunting bullet. On a side note I will second what has been said already. The 190 Gr vld hunting bullet works well in the 300 win. I have taken several bears with it and have been impressed. I haven't tried the accubonds on anything other than paper
