.243 Twist Rate

Hey everyone, looking at a .243 that has a twist rate of 1:9.25". With this twist rate what range of bullet weight would be best to shoot?

Thanks in advance!

That twist rate should handel any weight bullet.

A 1 in 10 is normal but the 1 in 9 or 1 in 8 will shoot them all.

Probably won't like the 105 Bergers or 107 MK's. Should be best with bullets 100g or less.

It should stabilize pretty much any bullet in the 55g to 100g weight range. To shoot the heavy match bullets 1:8" is pretty much required.
