I hope to have my 160 Matrix this week. I doubt it though. They said they would ship today. I am excited though. I like the pictures showind seating depth accuracy nodes. I am not all that surprised at the .090 off. My rifle went from .5ish inconsistent groups to .25 goig from .075 to .105. It was an accidental depth as I was actually looking .090. Ha ha they shouldn't let me out of the house.
.090" off bodes VERY well for my 6.5 SS. All kinds of room to load in a std. Remmy SA mag box!

    Right?! I actually went out 2weekends ago... shortly after I got setup the winds switched from 6 o'clock to 8:30-ish & bumped up to 18mph average with gusts over 20mph... I was actually prone with a round chambered (the new G10's) when the wind ripped my target from the backer to never be seen again... call me a girl but I quit right then & there...(blood pressure issues if you catch my drift) Been buried in snow ever since.


    60.0 grains of N570 went 3032fps
    60.4 grains " " " 3045fps

    Ladder test goes to 64.0 in .04 increments..... It's been a long time coming I know...

    Yeah, the winds can be real pesky this time of year. I've been having some issues with them. Someone in Rapid City will probably find your target

    Sorry for the distraction Cliff

    HaHa it's all good!
    I have threatened to put together a schuetzenwagon so I could just pull up open a window and shoot in draft free comfort

    Shot an A.I. for years before I built the Sherman. I'll be anxious to see your results. What barrel do you have?.......Rich
