Hi Bryan,
Thanks for making your data available. I find it very usefull.
That B.C. that you came up with is a bit lower than I expected and what is claimed by The Matrix mob. Any idea why the difference?

Would bullet pointing have much of an effect on the B.C. with this bullet?

    Yes I do believe it would help topshot, this bullet has good form except for it's meplat- it's too big and ruins the aerodynamics with excessive detached bow shock. The ideal meplat size for this bullet would be around 35 thou if it could be achieved...

    Since this bullet has a wide meplat (0.075") to begin with, I expect you could improve the BC by as much as 8%-10% by pointing the meplat. Bullets with smaller meplats (~-.058" to 0.064") have less to gain from pointing, around 2% to 4 or 5% typically.

    The BC's stated by Matrix are estimates, and are therefore subject to quite a bit of error when compared to actual test results. Marshal is a good fella and knows this, but the prediction method was the only tool available to him and he wanted to provide something for BC's instead of nothing. I don't believe he's deliberately inflating the numbers, just using the only tool available to him.

    -Bryan

    I have a Hoover pointing die and I had the guy at Hoover make me a special pointing punch specifically for the Matrix 190gr and I can get the point down to .053" without deforming the jacket.What percentange gain am I getting on the B.C. by having this done? Oh and yes they are accurate bullets, I am seating off the lands by .025". What distance are you guys seating them off the lands? I shoot a custom 7mm Dakota 25.5" Krieger 1-8.5 5R twist #5contour and using Retumbo 73.5grs for 2900fps.
    Thx
    Elmer
