Re: 160gr Matrix

Marshal from Matrix said a 1:8 will stabalize it just fine in most conditions. The bullet is only 1.49" long.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: 160gr Matrix

We shoot at a station pressure around 24.4 and in a 1-8 twist we're seeing a stability factor of 1.9, good and stable!

Re: 160gr Matrix

I think that might be the ideal bullet for my 6.5 Sin, I take it that the 160 is still in testing phase.

Re: 160gr Matrix

yes it is, if you send him an email he might send you a sample. He said he made a big batch last week.

It oughta huff 'em out there!!
It looks like bullet seated with the boattail junction at the base of neck the COAL would be 3.524"

For myself there is not much left to do but decide on which load, verify drops, get a turret label made, and go find a target with fur.......hmmm , and maybe some more bullets.

Please do, Riley. I am sure I am not the only 6.5-284 shooter here wondering what your results will be.
