Re: 200 grain Cutting Edge Bullets

The 140 Cutting Edge and the 160 Matrix are very close in length, I don't have them at hand but I shot the 140 CE's all season this year and my Dad shot the 160 Matrix. The 140 CE is stable at 6000 ft elevation in a 1-8 twist at 3188 fps but you get a little slower twist or loss some elevation and they start having stability issues, the 160 Matrix is more stable!

BNG is correct, the 160 is more stable.

The 140 CEB will not stabilize in my 8.4" but the 160 will @ 4200'... crazy i know but the tests don't lie!
