I use 200gr GameKings for deer season but don't stretch my shooting past what I can guarantee a hit. I am looking at the High BC bullets to get out to 1000 with as little drift as possible not for terminal ballistics.
Are the matchkings still the best. Oh yeah I am shooting a REm 700 Sendero 1 with a trued action and muzzle brake. No other mods. 1-10 twist I believe.
I think you’re approaching this the wrong way. Most any .308 bullet in a boat tail or VLD will offer a high BC. Why not figure out which bullet shoots best out of your rifle and work from there.
Also, if your intent is shooting PD at a grand or more, 200+ grain bullets will get you out there and do the job very nicely, but they’ll come at a bigger expense to shoot. Why not find a 150 to 175 gr bullet to work with? Lower grain bullets offers higher velocities, less powder needed, reduced recoil, less elevation trajectories to muck with and will cost a whole lot less than 200+ grain bullets.
Find a bullet that shoots accurately out of your rifle and work from there. Starting with the highest BC bullet you can find is not the best approach in my opinion.
Best of luck which ever way you decide to go.
