The more that get shot the better idea we'll have on the BC but the numbers line up decent. The .277 165 Matrix runs about .120 BC over a 150 Berger, if you apply that to the 6.5 cal which I know is rough but does give you an idea, the 160 6.5 Matrix is a better ballistic design than the .277 cal 165 and 20gr heavier than the 140 Berger so you can kinda guess a range to start from.
We've shot the 6.5 Sherman with the 160 and the 270 WSM with the 165 side by side same range and same wind and at nearly the same velocity with the same zero, and the 6.5 is spanking the 270, as much as it pains me to say that
The more we shoot the more we learn with each bullet we try!
