Re: 160gr Matrix

Anybody shot a deer or an elk with this bullet yet? Looks like a pain to anneal. Necessary?? Bruce

Re: 160gr Matrix

Rich,
I really like the looks of your setup (high volume). I used a 1/4" steel plate with a hole tapered to match the angle of the nose, put the bullet up from underneath, with about the same amount sticking through to do the last 20 I have for this hunting season.
Is that a fire brick?

It's a ceramic brick that I use for bonding bullets. I could set it up to do 50 if I wanted to but started with ten.......rich
p.s. you can order from Corbins

Annealing is really pretty easy! My buddy shot a bear this spring with my 6.5 Sherman with an unannealed one and he didn't travel more than 20 yards shot through the lungs. I don't think you would have to anneal under 700 yards, give or take, but that is somewhat of an educated guess based on my testing.....Rich
