That's what I was thinking... probably a little lower than the Berger 210 just from the pic. Would be nice if they listed the length and bearing surface.

Nice looking bullet anyway, but not sure if i would want to hunt elk or bear with them if they come apart.

Looking forward to your feedback on this bullet Bryan. I'm hoping you calculate an estimate G7 for this offering.

Bryan, did you ever get out to test these bullets against the bergers?

Matrix 7mm 190 grain VLD:
G1 BC: 0.673 (average from 3000 to 1500 fps)
G7 BC: 0.344 (good for all supersonic speeds)

Good bullets, but the stand-outs in the 7mm heavies were the 189 Cauterucio's at .703/.360.

The Matrix .30 cal 210 VLD is on par with other bullets that look exactly like it, a little better than the Berger and Sierra. The surprise here was the JLK 210 VLD Long BT which has a G7 form factor down around .92!

Stand by for second edition (about 8 weeks...)

-Bryan

Can't wait! Is there anywhere that we can place a pre-order? Would love to be one of the first to receive this latest edition.

Bryan, thanks for the update and info. One other question-are we going to get our 230gr 30cal VLD hunting? I want to chamber a 300 Norma bad!

Tagged for interest as I am considering a 7mm and these bullets being Canadian are easily accessible for me..
