Re: what's better 168 or 180
The best thing of you can afford it is try them all. Let your rifle tell you what is best. Accuracy is always more important than a few points of a BC. If they all have the same accuracy and consistency potential out of your rifle, then choose the one with the highest BC. If not, pick the one your rifle likes the best. A higher BC bullet often drops more than a lower one due to velocity differences yet drifts less due to the higher BC even though it is going a bit slower. Drop is of no concern in a match but windage is.

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