Expansion being the enemy of penetration, I'm going to say just the exact opposite of AllanJ. I'd use a 180gr partition, followed by a 165, and not bother with the 150.

Okay to shoot a caribou with a bear bullet, but not the other way around. The 180 will not be blistering fast out of a 16" barrel, or from a 308 in general, but it will be harder hitting, deeper penetrating, and break more bone than and hand gun. It will also handily kill a 'bou at 300 yards.
