Wow. Just measured these bullets and compared to the 140 vld BIG difference. Bearing surface is .580 vs .680. Base to ogive is huge too. Hope they will fly well with small jump.

Re: 160gr Matrix

I did find a few hours to go out and test. My 6.5-284 wound up liking 52.5 Retumbo, .100 off the lands, estimated via drop at 2850 fps. Might get up to 53 and 2900 ok too. It shoots .50 moa with combo.
