I talked with Frank at Bartlein barrels, about building two Custom Sako Rifles.
One with a never barreled Sako pre- Garcia Action and the other one on a Sako M85. Both in 7mm STW
Looking at Twist rates Frank said 1-9.5 would be good up to 175 gr and the 180 gr would require a 1-10 twist.
My question to you all, how would the 1-10 handle the lighter bullet wieghts ?
I looked at Layne Simpson's original article, which he stated the first rifle built
for the 7mm STW was with a twist rate of 1-10
I have a Custom .358 STA which is a beast and knocks the hell out of Elk size game , so I am looking forward to adding his little brother to the fold.
