Re: 168gr Sierra Match Kings for hunting?
[ QUOTE ]
shoot the 168SMK in my 308 in front of 45gr. of Varget. My reason for choosing this bullet is that it matches the drop on my Shepherd, Springfield military,

45 grains of varget yields pretty fast for matching the 168 to the Springfield. Springfield calibrates them for 2550 FPS.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, 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.
