Q: What is the best knot to tie to the loop on a shooting head line with monofilament such as Amnesia?

A: Several knots work well. Most people use a monofilament shooting line testing out at 25 or 30 pounds. A simple five-turn clinch knot works well. I prefer a Duncan Loop or uni-knot. Each forms a small connection and is stronger than the leader tippet.
