One that shoots best in you gun. You will have to try all factory loads. Each gun has their own mind what they like. Just like the rest of us. Each firearm may like one factory load better then another that is shooting the same cartiridge. My suggestion is to pick up a box of each and see how they group at 100yds. then at different ranges. Then also you may have to reload and taylor your own loads.
I realize this, but I thought I would see if there were any common favorites. It would only make sense to try these loads first.

Back in the 60's I bought bargain ammo at the local sporting goods store. They killed deer just fine. When I started reloading in the 70's, I used Nosler Partition.
They killed just fine. The last 7 years, I've used Barnes TSX and they have worked just fine.

Pick a bullet you think you might like and give it a try. Everybody has their favorites. What can you easily purchase? I'd start there and see if your gun likes that load.
