Nowadays, there are far fewer choices in 175's compared to 160's. That coupled with the fact that there are plenty of heavily constructed 160 - 168 gr. 7's, many with a BC advantage over the typical 175 offerings, I believe there's no advantage to a 175 anymore. Not to say that there's anything wrong with 175, just that 160 - 168 currently trumps em.
Your perception, not mine.
There are far more 160's available than 175's. That is fact, not perception. Most of the common 175's are flat base bullets. In 160's - 168's, you have a choice of every conceivable hunting and long range precision bullet ever dreamed. Not so with 175's. That too is fact.
That 175's will kill very well is not in dispute, just that it won't do anything that a 160 won't also do, while offering higher BC options in the process.
