Re: I think I got a deal

I have tried the Matrix 165's. Very touchy, some days it shoots great, others it won't even hit the paper? I think the Matrix is very sensative to the temp.

Berger 150's shoot great, that was my go to load until I heard about the Matrix.

Sierra Match Kings in 135 also shoot really well for paper. Too light for big game.

Gun shoots great for the range or even in a stand, but humping it through the mountains is not very fun...

Good luck

Re: I think I got a deal

Finally had time to go out and see how it shot. Didn't get time to make any handloads in it, so I tried some factories just to see how it did. Heres the first 3 shot group at 100 with Federal 130 gr. softpoints.
