Check the Ballistic Coefficient for each bullet and you see what works.

i mean the arodynamicss, because there is a hole in the tip,
does that throw off the bullet cutting through the wind

Aerodynamics is a very tricky subject. Open Tip Match bullets have outstandingly consistent accuracy. FMJs tend to be decent to decent-minus, depending not on their aerodynamics but the consistency of the way their bases are formed. Hollow points (much bigger holes than OTMs) can be anywhere from dead on to way off.

In general, this sort of question needs much more context before it's meaningful. Let's start out with "what caliber and bullet weight are you interested in?"

.223. i will be shooting through a 1/7 colt socom 14.5 barrel. i am really looking in more of the 62-77 grain bullet. i am still considering
any grain though. i will be shooting for accuracy and hunting rodents.

A new caliber in .233? If it's .223 you are talking about, the 68, 69, 75 and 77-gr OTM rounds from the usual suspects are all deadly thru that 1/7 twist tube of yours and should be stabilized well and accurate.

PRVI makes great ammo.

Their M193 is about as accurate as any other M193-spec ammo (2-3 MOA) but their match ammo is well-respected for accuracy.

Why not?

There's really no steel-core ammo you'd want to use on varmints.

with a 1/7 twist you are probably going to do better with 55 grain and higher. Black hills V-max 60 shoots great. For the most part, about anything will work

which bullets are steel, the democrats are going to
try to ban all lead bullets in my state

The most accurate bullet out of both my Noveske (1-7) and LaRue (1-8) rifles is the Lapua Scenar 77 grain bullet. The 69 grain Scenar is also a real dandy. These are of course OTM projectiles.

It wouldn't be steel.. There is steel for shotguns, but for rifle bullets Barnes is doing solid copper. big bucks though.
