300gr SMK vs 250gr Lapua Scenar

I have both of these bullets to use in a .338 WM so I was running the numbers on my ballistics program and discovered the following info.

To 2000yds the lighter Scenar is faster and flatter shooting but has slightly less impact energy.

I was kind of suprised that the lighter bullet would carry so much speed so far downrange, even with a BC that is almost .1 less than the big Matchking.
