It will all depend on how big of a challenge you want to hit something in wind!

It depends how far you plan on shooting. High MV is a greater advantage at closer range. As you get further and further out high BC becomes a larger advantage. It's always a compromise. If you spend some time playing arround with MV and BC vallues in a ballistic calculator, you can quickly figure out what's best for you.

Since this is Long Range Hunting, is this a trick question and if we get it wrong we have to write "Wildcat" on the blackboard 100 times???
