Very late addition from me. I had a P3-24 some years back and liked the plug and play of the three screw cartridge fittings. I went up to an Exact (about £190 back then) which was pretty good but then tried other cartridges and I would argue you can do more with the Rega tonearm. I liked it with a Goldring 1042 and then a Musicmaker III if that is any help.

I have a Rega Planar 3(2016) and recently changed my Cartridge to an Goldring 2500 MM and absolutely love it.I auditioned Ortofon 2m Bronze/2M black, Nagaoka and AT cartridges on similar kind of setup as mine before deciding on the Goldring.

I would recommend that you listen to some cartridges before you settle on one as all of them have different sound signatures and sound is personal taste.

I have the Ortofon 2M Bronze and I find it works OK in my system but my speakers are on the warm side Why I say this is some find the 2M range on the bright side, as it's said that Ortofon designed it to make it sound more like CDs kind of sound quality. Hope that makes sense to you!!
My turntable came with the Silver 2M made for Pro- j so I am getting more of the same with the bronze, again hope that makes sense.
Trying before you buy is not a option for me as there is no where that will let me do this where I live so I stayed with what I knew, But I'm happy with it.
Hope that this helps you in some way in making your choice of cartridge easier

My Last MM Cart was the Ortofon 2M Black on my Musichall MMF 5.1 Turntable paired with the Accession + PSU1. It sounded great in my set-up and gave me loads of happy listening hours. 
The Ortofon had a kind of Sharp tone when I was using my stock Metal platter, Later when I switched over to the Acrylic Platter the sonic sharpness was sorted. 
Note: Musichall Turntables are just re branded Project Turntables.

Good tip about trying a different platter to fine tune the sound!

Yes, I was lucky my first investment (Acrylic platter) worked-out good for me. Especially I did not want to start the rolling play with different Mats. The TT weights / Clamp also helped me in the fine tuning.
