    Hodgdon lists data for a 160g Hornady round nose on their data site.

    Give it a look. What ya shooting with these long bullets?

    Actually looking for something to correlate my 270 to.

    The hornady load with H1000 extrapolated to 58 grains and adding 3% for the extra 3 inches of barrel length is a dead ringer for my 270 with the Matrix VLD.

    The Lyman book says I can put 60 grains of H1000 behind a Nosler 160 but I start seeing pressure on the primer at 58 grains. I was pushing 2940 fps with 58.5 grains. Backed off to 57.5 and 2850

    So,

    Is there a Matrix VLD that is 160g? If so, does your rifle have a fast enough twist to shoot these bullets?

    I only ask cause I had a 6.5-06 AI that had a 1-9" twist that couldn't accurately shoot anything over 129grs. My father owns it now and it is a wonderful rifle and works for him.

    Why are you wanting to match it up with the .270? Even if you extrapolated data and got the same MV you couldn't compare as a VLD 6.5 cal bullet has a higher BC than anything out there for the .270. Apples to oranges I guess.

    Just trying to understand and help you find your info.

    Dan

    I have a 27 inch 9 twist barrel

    Shooting 165 grain matrix VLDs G1 BC is ~0.638

    Are you refering to your .270?

    If you are refering to the .270, that would certainly work with the 165g bullets.

    If it is the 6.5-06, I don't think that bullet weight would work, and I have looked at the Matrix bullets and it seems that they don't offer a VLD bullet in a 6.5 cal.

    just looking for clarification...
