Marshal Ambrose from Custom Rifle Bullets Built for Accuracy | Matrix Ballistics send him an email and he will probably send you a sample of 100. Thats what he did for me. He is out of Canada.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

I use a guy from Spokane Valley. Bruce Thom, (BAT actions) recommended him to me. He usually won't take on much work unless you are not in a hurry......Rich

Re: 6.5 ss final design

Thanks guys for the quick responses. I'll be watching this one close to see the final product. I linked onto the bullet maker's website, Do any of you have experience with this bullet and it's expansion on game at slower velocities? (Not trying to derail the thread, just curious)

The 6.5 160 is new so no on game performance as of yet but it's very similar to the 270 165gr bullet which performs awesome on game. But at this point I'm guardedly optimistic about the performance we're going to get from this bullet.

Re: 6.5 ss final design

Regarding the bullet: I will have mine next week, I hope, and be ready to test the following weekend. I am planning to run side by side to my bergers on wet newpaper at 1000 yards. If I can get gel I will run it through that instead. Doubt it though. I am also planning to use this bullet for our up coming bear hunts.

Bigngreen is the guy who has used the Matrix on game and I repect his opinion. As a bullet maker myself, I can tell you that the design is condusive to long range game performance in most respects. I plan on trying to test some out this spring on bears.......Rich
p.s. The Matrix is basically a Berger with lead clear to the tip, which in my opinion, gives it a little advantage in being consistent......Rich
