mud and back woods-
Have you shot a 140 berger at 1000 yards ? when they exit the muzzle a 3300 they are awesome. Especially when you are competing against guys shooting . 308 or an AR. The 168 bergers have a higher bc and will have ever so Slightly better numbers than a 140 berger, ... After you get past 600 yards . run the numbers the 140 berger is awesome.
