If you want a super penetrator....
See if your local shop can order those 300 gr SPs for you.

Otherwise, my choice would be for the 300 gr plated. (Out of what you've listed.)

I don't like the PPU bullets. They seem to be fairly fragile, tend to lose their jackets, and use a pure lead core. So... they end up turning themselves into a soft lead lump.
However... many plated bullets are not pure lead. They have a bit of tin in the mix to slightly harden the alloy. And, the plated bullets stay together better, since the plating acts as a 'bonded' jacket.


If you don't need maximum penetration, just stick with a cheap 240. (It doesn't really matter which one.)
