Re: 200 grain Cutting Edge Bullets

TYPO alert!

The 3rd bullet from the left in the pic I posted is a "300 gr TSX" not a 350 gr......

have no clue how to remove/replace pic and the edit link is gone now !

Re: 200 grain Cutting Edge Bullets

Just got some testing done with the C22. At 500 yards they stabilize well but from 600 and beyond they will not stabilize in my 10 twist pacnor moving at 3210. Group at 500 was 2", sorry no pic. The weather may have a little to do with it also. The temp was 15F, 30 Hg, 40% RH, 300 feet alt. I was hoping for at least 750 till they destabilized but oh well.

That's interesting. Were they keyholing? I'm hoping to get 3300 fps @ 3000' elevation and higher.

Re: 200 grain Cutting Edge Bullets

Yes they were. At 600 I got one perfect hole one keyhole and one clean miss way right. Saw the snow fly on that one. You should be fine at that speed and elevation. The guys at cutting edge told me to test them at range to be sure they would stay stabilized. Sure enough they were right. The guy said if they didn't stay stable you would most likely not hit paper. I can probably shoot them a little further during the summer when the temps come up a bunch. For grins I took my 220 smk load (3075fps) and shot at 500, 750 and 1000 yards. Perfect holes and decent groups. This was the first time I shot past 600 yards ever and was surprised with myself. 4.4"@750 6.5"@1000

Re: 200 grain Cutting Edge Bullets

Took these out today to see if they still shoot as I was sighted in with 240 smk's. I hooked up a new toy before the group; got a new chrograph, a magneto which seems more accurate than my old chrony. With a 100 yard zero for the 240 match kings, the 200 CEs shot 2.6" high at a 100 and at 3265 fps so are perfect for my 300 yard zero. I tested the 240s also and got 2954 fps as my average. The beta chrony was reading on the low side which is nice as to know. Although I figured it was about 50 fps low with drops using 220 smks. Hopefully I will get some terminal performance info and pics as I will be chasing moose this month.

Re: 200 grain Cutting Edge Bullets

Anybody know what the length comparison is between the 140gr CE and 160gr Matrix?

6.5mm 160 matrix is 1.49" 6.5mm 130 CE is 1.417" both need 8 twist barrels.
