To convert moa to inches, multiply moa by 1.0472, this will tell you how many inches per 100 yds you're dealing with. Just like you already did, 6 moa covers 6.28 inches at 100 yds........therefore it also covers 37.7" at 600 yds.
Again, just another reason why shooters moa or IPHY is easier, because 6 IPHY is 6" at 100 and therefore 18" at 300, 36" at 600 ect. No conversions and way easier to wrap our heads around.
I don't shoot a .308, but I've got a 300 WSM
in the works.
According to factory ammo velocities, the 168's are not much faster than the 175's in a 308. Only like 50'/sec so you won't gain anything really. The 168's will have lower BC's and more wind drift. Only plus I see for the 168's is maybe less recoil.
