    So the dude at Matrix bullets sold the company and kept the die for the 165 grain bullet so I have to choose a new bullet for long range. I would also like this bullet to perform at close range. The Matrix fitted both those requirements. Any suggestions?

    Big, it's not a super-custom, but the new 145gr ELDX may work for you. Just noticed it today on the Hornady site.
    Good luck

    Bumping to the top to see if anyone has any more options. Considering Berger but am concerned about close range shots.

    Hey Big,

    Are you worried about Berger Hunting bullets at close range? All or most the horror stories here have been with guys using target VLD bullets for hunting.

    Give the Hammers a try.
