169.5 .277 1-10 twist?

I would like to shoot the 169.5 wildcats but I have a factory 1-10 twist. Will this bullets stabilize at longer ranges? I shoot Tikka T3 270wsm.

Yes you can and should get around 2850 fps. The owner of wildcat shoots a factory tikka 270 wsm

They shoot well in my 1:10 twist Tikka 270 but I'd rather have an 8 just so I can shoot the 195's in it too. But that's what the 270 Allen Magnum is for.

I bought some 165's from Matrix Ballistics so I hope they shoot in mine. I just got them today so I won't know for a bit if they shoot well or not in my 1:10 twist rifles.

Hopefully they do. The ballistics are looking pretty interesting on paper. .738 static BC?

I've read a bit about the Matrix bullets and their BC's seem a little optomistic but a bullet that is available with and optomistic BC is better than one that is not available at all.
