Seems a bit slow unless it was a very fast/overbore cartridge that may stabilize it but u prob want to stay below 100 gn

    I shoot a 243 win Rem 700 with 26 inch barrel and 9.25 twist. I shoot 100's, 105, & 107 It has done some single hole 100 yards and some touching clover leafs at 200 Using @ 46 grains of R-22 or @44 grains of Hodg h100V

    My scope has 1/8th inch clicks and you can literally walk the holes across the paper to zero it in.

    Mathmatically 105 should be 8.5 to 9. but increased velocity helps with a slower twist.
    .270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.
