9.5 rate of twist 7mm ultra

Will a 9.5 rate of twist stabilize the 7mm .284 162 gr A-MAX?
What bullets with over .6 BC will stabilize with a 9.5 rate of twist?
Thanks for the help.

Yes, you shouldn't have any problems with stabilization.

Hey Liltank I was looking at the 162 gr A-MAX and the box called for a 8 twist. Have you tried the A-MAX with a 9.5 or slower? I probably should just buy some and try them but also don't want to waste time and money if someone knows they won't work. Thanks

I've not used them, but they should work. You really don't need a 1:8 until you start shooting the 175SMK's and 180 Berger's. The 1:9 to 1:9.5 should handle the 162's and 168's without any trouble.

I have tried the 162 A max in a 1-9.5 and they shoot great. The twist does a fine job the only reason i stopped useing them was the bad performance i got on a game animal at about 50 yards

What were your experiences with their performance? Did they explode or not expand at all? How do you think they will do at longer ranges? Last question what are you using now? OK one more question What do you recommend? Thanks
