680 b.c. seems to be working very well. It is indeed pretty hard to beat the ballistics, and yes, they do penetrate with that kind of SD!
My partner has used my 6.5 Sherman to kill a bear and my SS to kill an elk this year, both with the Matrix. The bear went 20 yards punched through the lungs and the elk went two steps with the same hit. Neither were hit in any large bones to break them down. "Bigngreen" (this forum) used his SS to bag an elk at 820, but wasn't using a Matrix. We are annealing the tips for long range and I'm quite sure, based on testing, they will work well......Rich
