Why was the 168 Berger not in the poll? I just bought a M700VS 308 & after hunting season I am going to start testing it. I thought the 168 Berger could be the allround choice for the following reasons.
1. most say the 168SMK is not quite enough for 1,000 yards but the 175 gets there due to the superior BC. Well, if the Berger numbers are right, the 168 Ber. @ .512 has a better BC than the 175 SMK. Does anyones testing show otherwise, please let me know.
2. Many are saying the terminal performance is about as good as it gets for Deer sized game. If so, you might have game performance of a BT with accuracy of a SMK.
3. It appears that the bullet may be the best blend of a hunting bullet for Caribou/Deer down, performance as good as a BT & ranging qualities of a Match bullet. If this is true & if my gun likes the bullet, it would appear to be the only bullet needed.
4. It should give the blend of vel. & BC that we seek.
I will find out, but if someone out there already knows, please let me know.
You will not make peace with the Blue Coats, you are free to go.
