Regarding something I've read stating:
"Within a class, packets marked with a higher drop precedence have the potential for being dropped before those with a lower value."

If I read this correctly, does this mean that between AF41 and AF43, AF41 would win out over AF43?

You are correct that AF41 will win out over AF43. that is to say that AF43 has a higher probability of being dropped than AF41.
