I switched from 168 SMK's using IMR 4895 which gave me solid 1 moa groups with my SCAR 17S. I am now going to try the Hornady 168 AMAX's. So I thought someone out their might have developed a load using these components and was willing to share to give me a starting point for the AMAX's.
TIA

I can't help you with he IMR495 but for the 168 AMAX and 175 SMK mine likes Varget.

42.8 to 43.0 of Varget with the 168 Amax is the sweet spot on my rifle.

Always work up your load and reduce your charge by 10% if using MIL brass.

42gr. Varget
168gr Hornady AMAX
CCI 200
OAL 2.800

If you are trying to duplicate the M118LR load by Federal

41.7 of IMR 4064
175 Sierra MK
Fed 210 GM
FC Match brass or
M118LR brass
