HF Energy calculation with Pb

Would these ADMM_MOLOPT auxiliary basis functions be appropriate to use as 
auxiliary functions for the RI methods (RPA or MP2), or would it be better 
to use the built in OPT_RI_BASIS method to create an RI basis set for the 
MOLOPT basis functions?  

If newly created basis functions are better, would one then use the ADMM 
basis for the HF portion of the RI_RPA calculation, the new basis for the 
RI auxiliary basis, and the MOLOPT basis as the reference basis?
