Bugholes has Brux 6.5mm 8.5 twist #5 contour fluted or non fluted in stock that will finish longer than 26" I believe.

    Here is a list of components that I will be using
    8 twist 3 groove 26" lilja sendaro contour barrel
    Defiance action
    Jewel trigger
    Mc Millan A-3 edge stock
    Huskemaw scope
    Talley rings
    Whidden custom dies as soon as I have a spent round to send to him
    I plan on shooting the 160 gr matrix bullet
    Sounds familiar*

    I've got my 264 getting re-barreled at the moment as well. My intended bullet is also the 160 Matrix. Had them up to 3150 out of my 24" 9twist before it puked.. bullets were just shy of stable tho. Slight smear to the bullet-holes on paper.

    Should be plenty good with an 8 or 8.5 I would imagine. I went with a Benchmark 3c myself and am anxious to get it back to start workin' at the load! Goodluck with yours

    3150 out of a 24" barrel is pretty fast heck ill be satisfied with 3050 out of my 26" er

    I have never seen any of those 160 gr bullets. They must really look like a golf pencil. Looooooooooooooog.

    The 160's are 1.52', .100" longer than the 140 Bergers.
    I am getting 3100fps with R33 in my 6.5 Sherman.
