Pick a weight that you like and run with it.

My personal preference for most modern cartridges is the "sweet spot" for a given cartridge - where it's most efficient and bullets aren't too heavy or too light. I.e.: 130s/140s in .270 Win, 165s in '06, 265s/275s in .444 Marlin, etc.

But I do tend to go heavy, or even stupid-heavy with some things, when the mood strikes me.
To date, I have not fired a bullet lighter than 154 gr in my 7x57s, or a bullet lighter than 143 gr in my 6.5-284. I've run 220s in 30-30, and up to 440 gr in .444 Marlin.

Run what you think will work, and you'll be fine.
