Either one would probably do well, I think if it were me I would be more inclined to try the 190. That's a great weight in the WM.
+1, but I would also consider the 210 Berger, 210SMK, and the 208 A-Max. The 300WM is a great platform for shooting these heavier bullets and all three have BC's between .631 and .648. I would really consider these and depending on where you hunt could make it an honest 1000yrd deer rifle. You can push the bullet to 2900-2975fps and that will actually get you to 1500yrds for paper and 1200 yrds for deer. It stops a little short at 850 or 900 for Elk.
I will caution you to not use the 168SMK for long range work. It is a known fact that once the bullet goes subsonic they will tumble. If you want to shoot a 168 then it is advisable to use the 168 A-Max, 168 Berger VLD, or the JLK bullets. They can transition more easily and stay on target.
I currently use a 300WSM with the 208's. I can get to almost 3000fps using Reloader 17. I am going to try Mag Pro from accurate this time around with the new to me barrel I have on it now. H4350 should also get what you need for velocity also.
