By my experience with a 308 at 1000 yards you shouldn't even bother with 168 grain loads. Going into transonic speeds, which you will with both the 168 and the 175, I found 175's handle it better.

To do it well you have to lean on it hard. Factory loads are not made like that. Federal 168's are loaded only 50 fps faster than 175's. Both with a limiting 2600 and 2650 respectively. Remember they are made to function in the M1A.
