Re: 160gr Matrix

Are these things Matrix' Hunting bullets or his VLD style? Would you guys have Ballistic Coefficients figured out by chance??

...man, a 160g 6.5*

Make for a wicked wieght through a 264 win mag, nice bit extra for moose & such with big bones! 140 works, but boy 160 ??? Am not far off from re-barrelling mine. That bullet might be a real consideration down the road*

Re: 160gr Matrix

rooster, its his VLD and Bigngreen said .720 for the BC works for his dad out of his 6.5 sherman, he also said the bullet has lead all the way to the tip. Some others said .7 works for them at a little lower velocity.

Re: 160gr Matrix

Geeez.. that's pretty impressive

What velocity difference is there between a 6.5 sherman and a 6.5x284 say? My most-accurate 264wm load with 140 Bergers is 3135 with Retumbo..

Really gotta wonder how it would push that 160* ...really has me thinking

I really want to try that now, I had to look up what a 6.5 Sherman was and it is based on the 06 case. My 6.5 Sin is off the 7mm Dakota case necked down and improved. I believe that bullet is a perfect match for it. I better get a 30" Brux on it's way............and about 500 of those bullets haha.

The 6.5 Sherman will run the same as your 264 win, accuracy is right in the 3150 range with a 140 Berger but it can push it a little hotter.

Re: 160gr Matrix

CliffM at the beginning of this thread said he has pushed them to 3050' with his 6.5 sherman and a 26" barrel, with my 6.5x284 and its 30" barrel i think i should be running around 50-100' slower than that and if the RL 33 works out good maybe even matching it. You should be able to push them about 100-150' faster than me with equal barrel lengths.
