190 gn Matrix Bullet B.C. .807 Who has tried them?

Anyone try these custom bullets?
They appear to be made in Canada.
Seem to come in a variety of calibres but no VLD type in .338" unfortunately.

The 7mm bullets look interesting!

Caliber Inches: .284
Weight, grains: 190.0
Core Density, lb/ci-in: 0.4097
Core Weight, grains: 141.0
Jacket Density, lb/ci-in: 0.32
Jacket weight, lb/ci-in: 49.0
Ogive Radius, calibers: 13.0
Meplat Diameter, inches: 0.071
BC (static): 0.8071

I haven't but I have tried the .277 175gr in a 270wsm and so far so good I know kriby has some of the .284 190gr but I don,t think he has had a chance to try them out yet I know the .277 are similar to the old wild cat,s a little lighter jacket but they shoot relay good so far and marshal is great to deal with

They also have some exciting looking 210gr .30 cals with a stated .75 BC !

I'm leaving in about an hour for a test that will include these bullets. Will let you know what I find in the coming days (it takes a long time to process the data).

That's good to hear, Bryan. Which ones are you testing? I'm not sure why they expect the 210 30 cal for example to have a BC any higher than the Berger.

Nice, would like to see if and by how how much the B.C. is over what is stated,
as I Have used them. They are accurate bullets just not sure if .807 B.C. is factual.
Thx
Elmer

I have little doubt they wont... im sure the BC is in for some significant downward revision... and not surprisingly they will end up very close to the Berger, Amax, etc...
