    Has anyone ever built one of these?
    With that Matrix 165gr vld I'm thinking around 3200fps. Now I realize the Matrix might have a inflated BC number but it should still come in higher than the 6.5 140 grain bullets.

    There would be no reason to build one to shoot their 175gr bullet, when Berger has that class of bullets in 7mm.

    Just looking for some input, and no I didn't smoke a bowl for breakfast.

    I don't think you're going to hit 3200, my WSM will edge up on it if I really push with the 165.
    The 175 maybe sweet, should out run the 7 SAUM with the 180 nicely.
