It will not only work but it is the recomended twist for all 7 mm bullets.
If you go much faster with the twist you may have trouble with the lighter bullets just like
if you go with a slower twist you will have trouble with the heavy bullets.
My 1000 yard match rifle was a 1 in 9.25 and it loved the 168s and 175 grain bullets.
Twist rates for a specific bullet may cause problems if another bullet weight is tried.
You will be fine with the 1 in 9.
