I would like to see how the CE compare to the matrix 142 and 160, and the berger 140 hybrid... hint hint such as this

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

Riley, I'll see what I can do for a pic. The 140 CE and the 160 Corbin jacket Matrix are so close in shape and length it's kinda odd, Outlaw I don't know if your going to stabilize that Matrix or not, if you don't let me know and I'll buy them back from you.

Rhian, Marshal uses corbin jackets? I wasnt sure but i thought he used j4s, i bet the corbins are quite a bit softer, i am going to try sending one into some milk jugs at reduced velocity today if i can make it out.

He recently started using both, the first 160's I had were on the J4 and they are a little shorter bullet because the jacket is thinner on them. The Corbin has a thicker base and shank but the nose thins out real thin, it should allow for excellent expansion but the heavy shank should control it to a degree and allow it to be pushed from some of the cases that would smoke a J4.

Ok cool, so would it be safe to say mine are the corbin jackets? And a thicker base makes me happi, happi, happi. I think an amax with the back 1/3 of it bonded would be about the best long range hunting bullet, Richs are pretty awesome too, i might have to give a "donation"......

I hear you brother, I'm not sure if it'll get'er done or not. The first thing I thought when I opened thte box of 160's was how similar to the 140 CEB they were. If they won't stabilize, I will let you know.

I've got a pretty good feeling about the 142's though....
Stay tuned

Since they are heavier and slightly shorter they will stabilize easier. Hope they work out for ya
