Sorry doesn't hold up atleast in EFT simulation (which while not always 100% accurate is usually a good guide).

Seems good old t1 scourge + rigors gives the best overall results (first bit of the graph is in web-range+TP range, 2nd bit in TP range only). Probably get a bit better results with faction scourge but probably very little noticeable results in decreased time and a worse ISK efficency.

this is best i think

switching ammo and stuff is boring. regular t1 missiles are cheap and work just fine. hams are a bad idea simply because they lack range.

My graph above seems to bear that out.

Range is probably less of an issue in a C1 compared to other classes as the sleeper types tend to have <16km orbit and close fairly fast - but from my experience HAMs struggle to put down damage on small cruisers and lower without significant webbing. You also have to bear in mind that if a sleeper is moving fast HAMs may take longer to reach them and while they might only be say 8km away as the crow flies the actual missile path could be getting close to double that maybe even enough that they never reach the sleeper.


EDIT: Chucking HAMs into the graph - with T2 ammo they do approx half the effective damage against frigs compared to HML setups even when webbed and target painted. With t1 ammo they are pretty much middle of the road for effective damage - rigor rigs seem to make pretty much no difference for HAMs and flare only a mild difference.
