This is my 151 stroke solution.

My strategy was trying to compress your 160 without sacrificing strokes to pack's constraints (escaping G and T took 4):

eval lc(j x 165^pack$<^C,'(M\xe2(\x9d\xe2\x86\x1b\x9b\x98\x81^xc\xe4\xa1\x9a\x12*y\x852b\x0f=\x88\xe6\x14I\x9e\x08\xf9\x9d,a\xa3\x99\x99eY\xf7\x8b\x04\xfa\x85\x10\xfa\x8e\x15\xd1*,C\xaah\xb6Y\xa87\xaa-\x81_\x10\xe9\xaa(I\x00\x00\xa1&\xa8\xa2d\x02W\xc4x1\xa5\x92L\xf3\x92\x00!\x97\x16\x98\x0cG\xa8\xba\xd5\x9f4Z\x9e\x16\xa7\x82>\xa6^\x15\x83\xea,C\xaa!\xf4\xeadQ\xcf\xa8qX>\xeb(')

So, after discovering Perl string bitwise operators, I applied ToastyX's law of PHP golf to Perl.

With the right timing x 165 can be replaced by x$$, saving two strokes.
