Re: 160gr Matrix

I think this is the perfect bullet for the what would be the hot rod 6.5's, like the Sin or WSM, use the case capacity to push some BC instead of pushing velocity which is more better IMO for LR

Re: 160gr Matrix

I talked to Marshal this week about them and he said he'd have some made by the end of the week. I think I'll order a box or two to run through my 6.5-300wm. I have quite a few phone books saved up for just such a occasion.

Good, I have only done paper and rocks, assuming they will behave just like the 165gr/270.

Re: 160gr Matrix

If i get a chance i will send a couple into some phone books or milk jugs with a case full of trail boss and check expansion. No promises though...

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

Re: 160gr Matrix

Glad you started this thread Cliff. It looks liking jumping them .090" has some potential as well. I can't wait to try some in 6.5 SS. For you guys who haven't seen the bullets, here is one between the 6.5 Sherman and the 6.5 SS Prototype......Rich160gr Matrix-dscf0519.jpg
