Which is better Federal Match or Black Hills Match?

To put in simply, I own a Savage 10fp and so anyways I have been doing alot of long range shooting lately (this basically means me and my friends go see who is the better marksman) and I was just wondering which .308 Match factory ammo is better Federal or Black Hills. So far I've noticed Black Hills seems to be the most economic choice. I've also been talking to a couple of long range guys at my range and basically i've been hearing that Federal is better or Black Hills is better, or load it yourself (However I lack neccessary skills and equipment to load my own ammo).
So which one is better Federal or Black Hills?

When i was at the range saturday, the range master came over and talked for a while. im guessing he saw my "sniper" style gun, and fed medal match ammo. he was saying his .308 pss loves black hills. his evidence was a 15" inch group at 1000 yards with fed, and 12" with black hills.
im gonna give black hills a try in my gun. he was also saying my pss has a 1 in 12 twist and 175 wouldnt be the best choice that 168 would. can anyone elaborate on this??
