240gr MK\'s and 10tw.??

.. Hey guys.. I was curious if anyone had stabilized the 240gr MK's in a 10tw.. I know Sierra says it takes a 9tw but I've found that most manufacturer's are a little conservative in their recommended twist rates.. I'm thinkin' about stickin' a 300Win take-off barrel on my Sendero to blow out these 240's and the WC872 no one seems interested in.. Thanks.. d:^) JiNC

    I've shot most of a 500 round box of them though my 10 twist 300 Tomahawk. Haven't had a problem stabilizing them yet. Nice perfect round holes at 1,000 yards.

    Jake,
    I'm looking to buy some 240 SMK's if your thinking about selling them. Email me at wambo3@netzero.net if you want to sell them.
    Thanks,
    Wayne
