Re: Has anyone used matrix bullets?

Well gentleman my little bride bought me a box of 7mm matrix 168 grain VLD bullets to play with for fathers day. I was able to load a ladder test up today and shot less than half of it before I hit more pressure than I wanted. Which was fine because I already had a good idea of what my rifle would like from shooting bergers in the past. After the ladder test was done I loaded up three 3 shot groups and then shot those at 300 hundred yards. I am pretty sure I can say in all honesty that these bullets can shoot. All 3 groups measure measured right at 2 inches. But the one I like the most averaged 3014 fps with a 14 fps spread in the 80* temps today and that group was, bullets 1 and 3 at .75" apart and bullet 2 was a flier that opened the group to right at 2" with only .75" vertical string. So that tells me I either yanked that shot or I need to still play with seating depths which is on the agenda anyway. Needless to say Im happy so far, because after only shooting 14 bullets out of the box im already grouping 2/3 moa. Ill get these bullets dialed in soon and then see how they react from being shot into different things and let you all know What I find.

The 210 out of a 300 RUM shoot .750 group at 200 yards from a Remington 700.
I really like them. Not sure if they are better than Berger but do shoot well.
