On their website the only accubond bullet they have is a 90 grain. If they make a 95 that would be even better. Hopefully I can find it. Thanks for the advice.

You can custom order Coopers with your desired twist(cost extra). I just ordered two a couple months ago. Lefthanded, faster twists, and pic. rails. They were around $2100 each with a laminate stock since composites aren't offered in lefthand. For the 105's in the 6br improved's the 8twist is the ticket.

Hope this helps

Ok so 1 in 10 is not the best for bullets 90-100 grains? How much extra is it do you know?

If memory serves me $100 for the barrel, $150 for the left handed action, and $125 for the 20moa rail.

I contacted my local gun shop, and we sat down with Cooper on the phone and found out what was available in lefthanded.

I am having built a 280ai in the jackson game and a varminter in 22-250. Both have laminate stocks and 20moa rails.

My dasher is a 7.75 but most use 8twist to stabilize the 105-107's and they send them at around 3050fps.
