Use this calculator and try to  stay below  or around 1 DB coax loss  in your 

My choice is  at least 7/8 heliax  and  some lmr600 up the tower, remote coax 
selector at the top 

Here the thing is BUDGET  vs LOSS

This may be a little off topic but I would appreciate your input.

I am putting up a tower and will need to run about 500 feet of coax.  Should
I go with LMR-400 or 213?  Any comments or input would be greatly
appreciated!  I am of course looking for the lowest loss.
