If your handloading I have found that the Hornady 168 Match BTHPs shoot very near to the SMKs of the same in Sierra. Very minor POI change but accuracy wise its very close. They usually run 20% cheaper in all quantity amounts but really shine if you buy by the 500s. MidwayUSA is having huge discounts on both brands so might be worth the look. My pet load with 168 SMKs works the exact same as the Hornady load in BTHP and only difference is seating cause slightly different bullet shapes. Now I would still back down powder charge 5% and work back up to ensure this for saftey but mine ended up exactly the same using OCW method...YMMV. ( Barnes Match Burners also work well and cheaper just harder to find )
