    Matrix claims that a 1:9 twist will work with the 190gr bullets, and when you plug the numbers into Berger's calculator a 195gr is plenty stabilized (over 2.0) out of a 1:9 at any altitude and I tried it down to 2600fps.

    I must need a new computer. I get a 1.32 SG at 3000 fps with a 9 inch twist. It takes a 7 inch twist for me to get the numbers you are getting.

    No, you will need an 8.5 twist @ minium, probably a 1:8 would be ideal if that is the only bullet you plan on shooting.

    However, keep in mind that this bullet has been talked aout for 2 years now, and we still haven't seen it. I'm not holding my breath, and I'll just stick to my 180's. LOL
