The lower the form factor, the lower the coefficient of drag? That translates to a more aerodynamic bullet?
Forgive me if I'm wrong, still just a kindergarten level student of ballistics.

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

Hi



Wild Bill on this forum has tested and shot them out of his "F Class open 7mm Saum with 30 inch barrel to 1,000 yards.

Bill stated his calculated BC over varied distances to 1,000 yards was that impressive he may be shooting them at the next F class open Championship.

Accuracy was superb and BC was very, very impressive. BC was just under quoted spec assuming Bills numbers were correct. I am reluctant to quote tested BC's as thats WB'S data.

Actually I have those Matrix slated for my yet to be completed 7mm Dakota build. If Bills' calculated BC is correct my Edge may be parked at the back of the safe for a while.

The Australian conection will be actively testing them on game shortly !
Lets see if we have Berger replacement down under as supply hasnt' been the best .

Thanks Bryan.

Bill claculated it at .77 and .78 respectively on his first tets firing with the 190's and was very enthusiastic with the accuracy results. Grouped well enough to clean up most events. He is the Aus open F class open champ.


Benchmark barrels are cleaning up Down Under at the moment.


We will be testing the 168's shortly.

.30 Cals are also the agenda.

They should d do very well in my about to be build custom 7mm Dakota ..
