107 smk

I just picked up a 6mm 700 vls and was wondering if it will get a 107 SMK to stabilize with a 1/9 twist? I know a lot of guys shoot a 105 amax out of it and they work so i thought maybe. What do you guys think first hand would be great

Copied from Sierra's website:

6mm .243 Caliber (.243) 107 gr. HPBT Match

Please Note!! This bullet requires a 1x7" to 1x8" twist barrel.

Unless you are shooting at some very high elevation you will need more twist or a great deal of velocity or both.
