I stayed with the pl259/so259 on lmr400, for jumpers I use lmr400 flex. Yes overkill to the max on HF, but adequate for UHF.

As was previously stated, N type is probably going to be better for your shorter wave length loss worries.

Fyi I'm only running 100 watts all mode 160-6, and 50watts 2m & 70cm.
