I looked at all the usual suspects, but for jacketed bullets I don't find much encouragement. You used to be able to import 168-grain Match bullets at a good price, but now PRVI is selling for about what Sierra is at Graf. No real luck anywhere else, either. I suspect the tarrifs have had a significant effect on anything made of metal. Mid-South's bulk Monster Match brand is more than Hornady 168's and I would trust the latter first.

Since the cost of the metal seems to be such a big factor, I would take a look at giving up matching recoil and point of impact and just get some 100-grain half-jacket or 110-grain carbine bullets and load them over Trail Boss or even Unique or some such and just figure out the difference in POI if you don't want to change your sights for fear of forgetting to change them back later.
