Re: 160gr Matrix

I just got my Creedmoor build back and am also very interested in the results you get with the .260.

    Maybe you could try a few in the Creedmoor.

    I will shoot an email and see if I can get some to test. My creed has a 28 tube and I can't help but wonder what some Reloaded -17 and that 160 will do

    Re: 160gr Matrix

    Well took them today for a bit. All my plans got messed up and i didn't have a spotter. Anyway, here goes:
    Short story, either the fps or the bc or both are off. At 1000 they were 2 moa lower than 2850 and .700 bc. The shoot fine. I have a few pictures. Wind was blowing left to right 7 to 9 and angling toward me. 3 moa left seemed perfect at 1000. Once I got elevation figured out I put a group on a rivet in the rock that was around .5 moa. Being a Dufus I shot too high up rock to get a picture with a tape etc.

    I am unsure but I think the 6.5 - 284 might be to slow for this bullet in a 24 inch barrel.
