Re: 175smk vs 168 barnes
Its hard to change something that seems to work so good, but the 175 SMK at the same velocity will perform a little better at extended ranges. Better meening a little flatter and a little less drift, but not a huge amount. Killing performance on big game would depend on the range.
The 175 SMK at the same velocity as the 168 will get you much farther than the 168. Mayee a couple to a few hundred yards before going unstable.
Hope that helps some

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
