    Depends a bit on your conditions and the size of the cartrige.

    The 1-9 has been working in most of the magnum cartriges.

    I have a couple of f-classers shooting the 180 hybred with 8.7 and 8.8 twists in straight 284 winchesters and the accuracy is excellent.

    Tank,

    I like your approach...
    1:8 twist with lots of English..

    Shoot for the heart and let the spin drift give you access to the whole neck line if you're too conservative with the wind call.
