Re: 160gr Matrix

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[/QUOTE]

My rifle is built on a Howa action with a 26 inch 8 twist Shilen Select Match.

    I was thinking the exact same thing!

    Is the length of the lead the same for both the original and the SS ?

    What is the bearing surface of the 160's? I only have about .430" of neck and throat.

    Rich ,
    If I figured it right your COAL would be 2.895" and .090" short would be 2.805". Isn't that the max length for many of the short action magazines
