If the 175 had the same form factor as the 190s you're shooting it would put their BC at .537 G1. Not bad for a 175 grain pill. If they could be made with the same form factor as the 215 hybrid (if even possible) they would still fall noticeably short of the .6 mark. About .566 G1. Velocity aside, it's all in the section density and form factor. Even though different barrel characteristics will alter the form factor causing small variances between rifles, the percentage of differences is very minor. It's just not possible to make a 175 grain 30 cal bullet much more than .550 G1 if at all. If you need or want higher BCs, you have to go heavier or with a larger caliber along with heavy for caliber bullets.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, 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.
