If not for the commen 168 loads from almost every ammo manufacturer id vote 180 SMK while the 175 smk starts with a slightly higher bc at over 2600 fps the 180 retains a higher bc through out the rest of the velocity range due to its slightly different shape, and how long is a 175 going to be over 2600fps in a 308, the 178 amax and vld are good choices as well.
