I too had better accuracy with Hornady 165's. That was in my .308.

I have been using the Speer #2034 165gr. BTSP for many years in a heavy barreled Howa 1500 rifle and many other rifles and all shot great with my load of 42gr. IMR 4064. It gives me 2500 FPS which isn't the fastest but it is the most accurate load of all I worked up. The Hornady 168gr. BTHP match with the same loading shoots to same point of aim.
