I've never seen such a list with individual components specs on it.

Same here, I have never seen all the different mainframe dimensions listed together.

Same here but would definitely like to see that info if someone digs it up.

Well since boo owns one of everything he should start with the Vixen and work up to the 440 measure and compile a list :D .
WE could all measure our rails and post on this thread and peace it together by filling in the blanks.

1999 Exocet overall 21 in from riser 18 in 3/8

The 380 has a 13.12 power stroke and the 330 has a 11.37 power stroke I would guess 1.75 off the rail would do it but it is just my guess.

If memory serves me correctly, the 2-holers would get cut back to make the rear hole the first hole. Which like effectively knock it back an inch or so. Which would land you somewhere around 330-340.

I have discussed this on the phone with DM before, he's done it plenty. But I have not. Due to the added requirements of machining enough space to remove both holes, your be removing a lot of rail ...3" likely. That would drop you down to 300-310. Don't quote me, but I'd be looking to simply move back one hole.

I had Danny Miller cut 2 inches off my Matrix 380 rail several years ago and it turned it into a Matrix 310 with a 350 gr. arrow. I don't know if this helps or not. I have a chronograph and I checked speeds before and after the rail was cut.

That makes sense, it usually 20' for every half inch. But it's not linear, it decreases as the length decreases

I have a converted Matrix 330 from a 380. My rail from the outside cut to the cocking mechanism is 12" now.
