    Montana Marine,

    Are you sure on the Marine sniper M40a3's being a 1-12? I work at Quantico and thought the gunner in charge at Wpns trng Bn who builds all the M40s for the USMC told me that they are 1-11. I know for a fact the Army M24s are 1-11. I would be very surprised if they were still 1-12s.

    I have a used br barrel on my deer rifle cut at 21". It has a 14 twist, I use 150 nosler ballistic tips with great accuracy, the 165's shot well also, very well actually. I live and hunt in Fl, am I ever likely to see conditions where my slow 14 twist will not stabilze my bullets of choice? 308
