I was just going to recommend this gauge but even the package says it's for C tuning haha. So I'd use these.

Re: tune a LTD MH-400 in C-standard?

I just put these on my xiphos,
DUNLOP HEAVY CORE ELECTRIC GUITAR STRINGS 11/50 HEAVIER
Then the top (11) string broke and I replaced it wit a .013 from another set, sounds even better with more bite at the top.

maybe there is better but these are fine in C standard, I had to loosen the truss rod to
stop buzz on the third fret but now its OK.
