    I was wondering if anyone can tell me the difference in length between 175gr .277cal Martix and the 165gr .277.

    I am kicking around shooting both out of the 8 twist Brux and I am trying to figure out which I should have it chambered for. .270wsm, FYI

    Sorry, I should have stated that I have 100 175's, I have not purchased 165's as of yet
