    I noticed when loading the 168 BT and 200 AB that my cartridge OAL was identical in my 116 savage rifle when measuring the distance to the rifling. They both measured 3.420. I thought they might be using the same profile on the two bullets with a different bearing surface. Either way the profile is very tapered for the 168 OAL to match the 200 grain accubond.
