Federal Gold Medal Match

I normally handload, but I was doing some testing and experimenting with some various factory loads. What I discovered when I recently bought some Federal GMM 175 MK in 308 win. Somthing was not right. They were in fact 168 MK. The box said 175 and the ammo installed was 168. I was wondering if anyone else has experianced this issue?

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
