    Skip the 168SMKs, the BC is horrible. There are much better bullets such as the 162 Amax, and the 168/180 Berger VLDs.

    Here is my 162 AMAX/7WSM load

    Frank

    Try H4831sc with the 168 SMK, Start with 60grs (Should be arround
    2750 ft/sec) and work up.

    The 168 is a great bullet so dont let the listed SD worry you. some manufactures
    still use the old method to calculate BC because it makes there bullet look better
    than there competitors. (In The old method the 168 SMK BC was .629).

    It realy depends on what your rifle likes.
