Having trouble with spoke lengths.

I'm building my first wheelset but my usual supplier doesn't stock suitable spokes in 299mm or 297mm for this build, only lengths in multiples of 2. What would my options be? I was recommended these sizes by the supplier:

32h 3x -


Left spoke length: 299

Right spoke length: 299


Left spoke length: 298

Right spoke length: 296/297

EDIT: Apologies, here's the parts in question:

Spokes: DT Swiss Champion 2,0

Rims: Mavic Open Elite

Hubs: Shimano Tiagra RS400

I was considering rounding up 300 all round, and then 298 for the rear drive side but I'm not sure if that will work. Another idea was going 298 all round and then possibly 296 rear drive side. Very confused at the moment.

Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!
