Camshaft Options for SBC 350

I am rebuilding a 1988 GM 350 motor. I had to go .060 over to get the cylinders right. I'm looking for a reliable, smooth running motor that I can get some reasonable gas mileage out of using regular fuel. I have refreshed the heads and will be using stock valves and valve springs. New pistons of course mounted to the original rods. The rods are in great shape and match original specs. The crank has been polished and balanced. I am seriously considering a stock cam to get the reliability and smoothness I desire. I have been told I could go to a more aggressive cam for better torque without compromising smoothness or mileage. But I don't have the experience to be able to judge what lift or duration would be a decent option. Any suggestions on how to go about evaluating different cams that would perform to my expectations?
