Re: twist rate?

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.
