168VLD and a 1:8 twist

I got a 7stw with a 1:8 twist do you guys think this twist is to fast for the 168? Would the 180 be better? Thanks for all the help guys

    I don't know if it would be too fast for the 168s, but I would shoot the 180s anyway. Higher BC and harder hitting. The best way to find out would be to burn some powder behind them. Good luck.
