If plinking I would try the WWB first, the 69gr Federal Gold Metal Match is a little on the expensive side at $30+ with reman. being cheaper than that. Some flat base varmint bullets tend to shoot better than fmj also, when I have a barrel that I suspect may be a little loose I try to stick to flat base bullets with a forgiving ogive like the Speer 55gr TNT or Barnes Varmint Grenade, some other soft points are ok too as long as the tip isn't damaged in feeding. I usually don't have good luck with boat tails in a loose(large bore) barrel.
Try a box or 2 of several kinds until you find what the rifle shoots well.
Ultramax is known to load some decent reman. stuff along with Black Hills and Hunting Shack. ETA- just because some will think something, there is no particular order here. Black Hills loads some great match stuff, others swear by some of the varmint loads from the other 2 companies it all depends on the purpose of the rifle.
Hi perf barrels and bolts
