Re: Cutting Edge 425/13-6.5 Gain twist

Also, when the 8500 was shipped to me there was no bolt stop in it. It still has no bolt stop. The base was so far out of spec none of my rings would fit. They did send me a new base that worked with the Badger Max50 rings.

With all that being said, the rifles built on the two actions have all been shooters.

Cogratulations! I am also having extreme success with several of the cutting edge bullets. However I am not in the extreme long range game so do not post here. I have shot a few to 1500 yards that did very well out of hunting weight rifles.

Re: Cutting Edge 425/13-6.5 Gain twist

OP, does this barrel start out a 13 twist rate and end up a 6.5 twist rate? I am very familiar with the gain twist barrels, I just didnt know they made any with that radical of an increase in the twist rate. Thanks, BK

Yes, it starts at 13 and ends at 6.5.

I fired one Rd just at dark today. Rd hit a 12 in circle on the edge at 7 o'clock. Range was 2055 yds. Due to darkness and hazy conditions I didn't fire any more rds. The next stop will be 2500.

I am technologically challenged, therefore I don't post pictures. The rifle is a Lawton 8000, Manners stock, Bartlein 30 in barrel. I could get my daughter to take a pic and send it to some of you guys. You could then post it if you wish.
