175 MK\'s...1-10" or 1-12"?

This is for a 308 bolt gun with a Lothar Walther barrel that will be shot in Tactical Matches up to 1000yds. I want it to shoot the 175's, don't care about the 168's. Which would I be better off with? What muzzle velocity would I need to stay transonic at 1K?

Thanks, Keith

    Marine sniping rifles in .308 are twisted 1-12. Marines shot them out to 1000 yards with the 175grSMK.

    S1, could you elaborate on the weather conditions where 1-12 will not work, and exactly what effect these weather conditions have on the bullet/accuracy. I do not ask out of disbelief, but it surprises me that the military would use 1-12 if 1-10 would have advantages in variable weather conditions.

    Thanks, MM

    Thanks for the feedback S1.

    I always prefered a 1-10 in my .308 bore rifles for versatility in bullet weights on the heavy end. I shoot 190 gr SMKs in my 1-10 twist 30-06. Work well. I've tried them in my 1-12 .308, to 200 yards. OK at that distance, but haven't shot them at long range.
