I think that is a nice choice. Summit SUM-1102 may save you a few $.

Allthough not entirely nessessary, I would change the valve springs. It is a small investment,around $30-40 for a decent set to compliment that cam.

New valve stem seals while your in there also.

First you say you're rebuilding a 305 and ask what cam to use. Later on, you tell us that the cylinder pressure is 159 pci (I assume you meant psi). Do you currently have a running motor, but plan to tear it down for a rebuild? You couldn't have checked cylinder pressure unless the motor was somewhat together.

give a complete list of the parts you intend to use if you want something better than just a guess.With diligent work and a decent supply of "quality" parts, one horse power per cubic inch is easy to attain.

super chargers work well,turbos also work well

rather than ask miscellaneous questions and getting random answers:
tell us the application for the engine and what you would like for performance.
biggest obstacle is always budget.
