According to Berger's twist calculator their SG rating is 1.40 as opposed to 1.65 for the Berger 168gr VLD Hunter VLD...a bit less. The AB LR have a higher BC and ARE Bonded.
Am I going too crazy with this or is the 1:10 OK?
How do you know you have a 10 twist? Have you actually measured it? The typical factory twist for the 7 RM is 9 1/4 - 9 1/2. If it's a custom barrel, it may have been made for a specific bullet in the 140 or 150 gr range. If you're getting good groups with the 160 AB's, then stick with it.
You say the 160 AB SF is 1.40 vs the 168 VLD of 1.65? That is VERY odd, as it would imply the 160 AB is much longer than the Berger 168. Not possible or factual. Maybe you made an input error?
Don't drink the Nosler BC Koolaid, their BC is BS.
