Picking a starting bullet (300 RUM)

To my great surprise I not only found brass but also large magnum rifle primers right away and can start thinking seriously about load development in 300 RUM. I'm planing to load 180 gr to 3000 fps, right now only for paper punching at long distances.
I'm looking for suggestions on bullets to pick. Sierra Matchking seems a good start, but Lapua has a new 185 gr with a very nice BC, and I'm sure there are others out there.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
