Although the 180 grain bullet is somewhat a standard in the 30-06 if you are truly interested in long range (another subjective term) look for bullets with the highest ballistic coefficient. Compare both the different manfacturers and bullet weights. The greater the range the more important these become.

You'll do just fine with those nosler partitions. Dont count out hornady or Sierra game king either

Your velocity will be around 2600-2700 fps with that bullet. That's fine for targets, but if your hunting I wouldn't go past 600 yards. Your energy will really drop off after that.

If your hunting look into how your bullet behaves at different velocities. When they get slower they don't open up as well.

Edit: you posted 300 350 yards while I was writing this. Your 180 ballistic tip should be fine. Long Range out west is more 7-800 yards. 300 isn't out of your maximum point blank range.
