350 build upgrade cam suggesstions.

I bought a built 350/300HP engine w/2 bolt main. The specs on build sheet are:
73-79 block
heavy duty w/high pressure cam boss plug
Vatted-magged-certified for machining
Bored @ .030
Decked for squareness
Clevite cam bearings
Brass freeze plugs New galley plugs and front plus for cam tapped for high-pressure pump

Crank cast #442 ground @ .010x.010 and micro polished
Clevite main and rod bearings
Heavy duty re-sized rods w/ARP bolts- balanced
Hyper flat top 4 valve releif pistons Speed pro
Chrome Moly rings Speed Pro
Used harbonic balancer w/ new bolt
ROtating assembly balanced
Hyd cam and lifters Speed Pro
Cloyes true double roller timing set w/ lok-plate
Mellings hi-volume pump w/ new pickup and brace
ARP pump bolt and solid pump drive
Fuel pump rod w/ backing plate and bolts
New fuel pump w/ new bolts
Manley .065 wall pushrods
64cc 194x1.60 valves, Z28 springs, bronze guides PC seals, hard seats, 3-angle valve
Heads were squared-new loks
GM re-furbished glass beaded head bolts
GM steel stamped 1.5.1 rockers w/ grooved balls
Edelbrock Performer intake w/ Edelbrock 750 carb
All gaskets by FelPro
New long water pump w/ bolts and washer kit
Re-furbished spin-on GM oil filter adapter w/ bolts

Comp ratio @ 9.5.1
Don't have anyother specs on cam

This is in a 78 Chevy K10 SB pickup w/ 4-spd trans and electric cooling fan, Hedmann headers w/ Flowmaster mufflers, Accel HEI billet-proof distributor w/ Accel hi-volt coil. I recently acquired a pair of brand new GM vortec heads and was going to change the heads and cam. What is a good cam for this setup? It will be a daily driver, but I want it to haul balls. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome. Being new to the site, you need to be sure to read the "Read Me' posts at the beginning of each forum. The ones here for example recommend that you just post a general introduction here and post tech questions in the appropriate tech forum, engine in this case. This will give you the best chance for a good answer.
