The tier 6 gun: 85mm?

or their tier 7: 122?  (more damage, but long reload)

122mm is just devastating for any of your opponents. It's basically half their health, even for some tier 7s. It's like a mobile su-100y with real armor.

I'm working to improve my winrate. Currently: 45% 46% 47% 48%  49% 50% 51%ish >>> 30 days is 60% ... Currently working to become a unicum, and all tips are appreciated!

I have to agree with all of the above...122mm is the best option. Play it like a KV-2 but with better speed and armor. 
If you aren't reloading, aiming or shooting...you probably need to MOVE!!

122 for sure. Wait is painful, but the reward is glorious. Aced mine with that gun. Still one of my favorite tanks.

20 min reload on 122. I always feel unable to chip opponents down all at once like I do with mediums and French heavies. It sure is a new experience for  me. What gun has better DPM?

I don't mind the reload time at all. I keep an adrenaline handy if I feel like a red is going to try and rush me during a reload, but i generally find that I don't need it. Anything that'll auto pen me also has a decent long reload. Anything that has to really pick it's spot to shoot doesn't do much damage per shot, do either way I have time. Reds really seem to respect the KV1S too, so they don't generally get too aggressive against it.

 

I keep the Kv1S around with the Kv-2. One of my problems that is a work in progress is over aggression.  The longer reload makes me think about my positioning relative to the team more. Good therapy if I'm on tilt and getting too aggressive.
