Re: How i Test Ballistic Coefficients-Matrix 175gr
The only Matrix I have been able to recover from animals is shots under 100 yards and hitting a bull elk in the neck or shoulders. They end up in a twisted copper mess on the off side, not much weight is left but it's blowing bone all the way and does an amazing job blowing the life out of stuff. Farther out I have not been able to get one to stay in an elk even shooting them through shoulders. I shot a bunch of deer last year and all exited, even with very heavy quartering shots at close range. I shoot mostly the 165 Matrix and the wound channels have been very even when shot through the chest, they seem to open at the same time and the organ damage has been even with exit holes all about 1.5-2 in.
Bullets pulled out of the berms at 1000 yards are opened up a little over half way. Personally I would not hesitate to put a 165 Matrix behind the shoulder of a moose but I'm very, very comfortable with these bullets!!!
