Using the 175 for long range hunting it has a .672 B.C. and with the heavier weight should be better for long range, less wind deflection and better terminal balliatics. Time & testing will tell if this is true.
Good information, yes I'm concerned about the weight too, will advise on the results. I'm looking for a load that works well out to 800 yards for Antelope. What distances have you gone out to? I assume these loads are the most accurate for your rifle? Thanks for your help!
