Re: 1 in 12 twist 6.5 bullet weights
I took that advise and traded the barrel for a 7MM Remington magnum barrel with a 1 in 9.5 twist. What a pleasure it is to have so many bullets to choose from and I have actually worn this barrel out and replaced it with a 300 Winchester magnum barrel. This turned out to be a bit more of a kicker but effective just the same and bullet selection is awesome. With a good rangefinder I can't really say one is better than the other because if you know the drop for the ranges you will shoot you can make hits with just about any reasonable cartridge with good result as long as the velocity and energy are there ( and the wind is reasonable). This might sound wrong somehow but I think I may build my next long range rifle in 280 AI, or even a 30-06 with all the great high BC bullets out there why not and recoil is getting to bother me more in my old age than it once did.
