I mean no offense my friend. I served for 3 years pre-9/11. I never saw any fighting but up hold the greatest respect for those who have and will.
I watched an Army Sargent get put in the ground 6mo. after his baby girl was born to his wife. I cried like a baby. My grandfather was a submariner in WWII, and 1 of my cousins has already spent time in the sandbox and the another is scheduled to ship. The second is going to be up in the air if he makes it home or not. He is a engineer (explosives expert). I have many friends who have served and many that were or are snipers.
Anywho, back to the topic at hand. I realized the passing of your buddy. I was just stating if you can research the gun in question, ask the parent, or find one online, you could figure out the twist. If it is an older rifle, chances are that it won't stabilize the 162's like the newer rifles with a tighter twist.
