I tend to use LMR-400 and LMR-400UF for most projects, even at HF. I'm seriously considering purchasing a complete toolset from Times Microwave for terminating connectors. The tools are expensive, but there is nothing like knowing you have a solid cable. 

Times Microwave has some great videos on their site showing proper installation of connectors, it's worth watching even if you don't plan on buying their tools.
