Agree completely. You won't see 139 and 140 reaching 1K with as much energy. Whether it's faster or not it loses kinetic energy VERY fast and doesn't have the weight behind it to retain it at that distance. Which is WHY the 180's were invented in the first place...The heavier the bullet with the higher the BC, the better long-range capabilities it will have.
Yeah, whoever told you the 139 and 140's were better at long range than the 168's and 180's is a moron. I wouldn't listen to them ever again.
