How about the .308 168's?

Yes. I have been impressed with this bullet on game with 308 velocities out to 300-350 yards. After that, I dont like them at all. I get very good reliable expansion between 0-350 yards but not much further. Bear in mind that the higher the velocity, the further you will get reliable expansion. If a LR deer bullet is your desire, look at the 168 and 178 AMAX bullets. Sorry, I havent used the 7mm version.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
