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.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
