I used to do the same thing when I first went to Bergers. I wanted 7mm the 168 Bergers for long range and was packing 160 Accubonds for timber hunting. I eventually grew to trust the Bergers enough that I no longer carry the Accubonds but I still don't think it's a bad idea.
I think you're getting off the wrong track worrying about the BC of your short range bullet. BCs don't mean squat until 400 to 500 yards anyway. If you really interested in having a short range hammer then I'm thinking the 200 NAB, 200 Barnes X, 200 or 220 Partitions. You'de be hard pressed to argue that any of them aren't as good as the others. To me, my biggest concern would be for the bullet/load that gave me the same point of aim at my zero range as the 210 Berger.
