Darn it you're right. I was thinking they came in a 1:8.5 or 1:8 twist.
As cheaply as old 700's and Model 70's can be bought at pawn shops and online one could just buy one, junk the bbl and send it off to Krieger for a new custom bbl in the desired length and twist rate.
Kreiger will do the whole job including truing the action for under 800.00.
