.308 168gr Nosler BT for LR

My sons Savage .308 win shoots these bullets so well I'd like to keep shooting them but didn't know if they have the same sabilization issues as the 168gr SMKs have.

I'm getting his gun set up for longer range shooting and planned on loaded 175gr SMKs for it, but the BC is nearly the same as the BTs. So I thought maybe if the BTs are known to shoot well out to 1000 yards then I would worry about changing his load.

Hard to believe no one has used these for long range shooting. Again it would mostly be for hitting steel out to 1k and deer inside of 600 yards.
