Re: 160gr Matrix
Thanks for the good info Brent, i just loaded up some rounds with retumbo in my 6.5x284, 5 at 50 grains (fouling shots, cleaned out copper last cleaning), 3 at 51, 51.5, 52, 52.5, and 53 grains seated .264" off the lands, i can seat farther out but .264" off the lands is 20 thou shorter than the MAX oal that i can eject a live round without pulling the bolt. I could seat out to an OAL of 3.397 and be at the lands but 3.153" is the longest i can eject a live round (the rounds i have loaded now are at 3.133 Base to tip.). Hopefully i can make it out to the range either this weekend or next.
