308 ar10 starting point recommendations

I just got a AR 10 I know each rifle is different so I'm just looking for some starting points on bullets and powder to narrow the choices.

The barrel is Rainer arms 18 inch 1/11 twist poly gonal rifling.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

I want a good universal round. I don't want to go any lower than 155 grains for the bullet. I've heard good things about berger and hornandy bullets but one of my concerns is feeding since this is a AR 10 rather than a bolt action.

Although it would be fun to target shoot longer distances I would not want to try and take down game at any further with a 308 unless it was an absolute emergency. Plus I have a bolt 7mm rem mag for really long distance.

I used Freedom Arms 178 gr A-Max last year in my DPMS AP4 308 I use for 3 Gun to take two deer. Both dropped in their tracks. 1.355 " group at 200 with it.

Hornady Superformance 165 SST are amazing on deer too.

I have had good long range success (612 yd antelope) with 150 Nosler BT handload also.

For elk or anything big, 180 gr Barnes TSX is my preferred bullet.
