    Anyone try these custom bullets?
    They appear to be made in Canada.
    Seem to come in a variety of calibres but no VLD type in .338" unfortunately.

    The 7mm bullets look interesting!

    Weight, grains: 190.0
    Core Density, lb/ci-in: 0.4097
    Core Weight, grains: 141.0

    Jacket weight, lb/ci-in: 49.0

    I haven't but I have tried the .277 175gr in a 270wsm and so far so good I know kriby has some of the .284 190gr but I don,t think he has had a chance to try them out yet I know the .277 are similar to the old wild cat,s a little lighter jacket but they shoot relay good so far and marshal is great to deal with

    They also have some exciting looking 210gr .30 cals with a stated .75 BC !

    I'm leaving in about an hour for a test that will include these bullets. Will let you know what I find in the coming days (it takes a long time to process the data).

    That's good to hear, Bryan. Which ones are you testing? I'm not sure why they expect the 210 30 cal for example to have a BC any higher than the Berger.

    Nice, would like to see if and by how how much the B.C. is over what is stated,
    as I Have used them. They are accurate bullets just not sure if .807 B.C. is factual.
    Thx

    I have little doubt they wont... im sure the BC is in for some significant downward revision... and not surprisingly they will end up very close to the Berger, Amax, etc...

    That's what I was thinking... probably a little lower than the Berger 210 just from the pic. Would be nice if they listed the length and bearing surface.

    Nice looking bullet anyway, but not sure if i would want to hunt elk or bear with them if they come apart.

    Looking forward to your feedback on this bullet Bryan. I'm hoping you calculate an estimate G7 for this offering.

    Bryan, did you ever get out to test these bullets against the bergers?

    Matrix 7mm 190 grain VLD:
    G1 BC: 0.673 (average from 3000 to 1500 fps)
    G7 BC: 0.344 (good for all supersonic speeds)

    Good bullets, but the stand-outs in the 7mm heavies were the 189 Cauterucio's at .703/.360.

    The Matrix .30 cal 210 VLD is on par with other bullets that look exactly like it, a little better than the Berger and Sierra. The surprise here was the JLK 210 VLD Long BT which has a G7 form factor down around .92!

    Stand by for second edition (about 8 weeks...)

    Can't wait! Is there anywhere that we can place a pre-order? Would love to be one of the first to receive this latest edition.

    Bryan, thanks for the update and info. One other question-are we going to get our 230gr 30cal VLD hunting? I want to chamber a 300 Norma bad!

    Tagged for interest as I am considering a 7mm and these bullets being Canadian are easily accessible for me..
