Re: Opinion on 180 Grain Bullet Out of a 1:12
A quick check of Bryan Litz's work indicates a nominal stability factor of 1.3 for this combination. Stable, but getting into marginal territory. At the best case scenario, it goes up to around 1.49, which indicates good stability. I'd give it a shot and see what happens. Given that you've got a buttoned there, and they tend to vary a bit, it could be a tad faster than a true 1x12", which would be a good thing for you here. Of course, it goes both ways and could be a bit slower, too. If so, you're even closer to the edge. In any case, it's worth trying just to be sure.
