If you can push the 165 Matrix at the same velocity your gaining over .100 BC for free, the Matrix are easier to get a load for, and easy to get. Boils down to more energy with less wind drift and higher impact velocity farther out, all good for hunting.

I would think R19 is way to fast but I've never loaded it, I would try it but not waste much time if it isn't showing good stuff early.

    I was hoping you guys could provide me with a list of powders that would possibly work with the 165's. So when i make a trip to my local shop i can shop around. Thanks
