Thank you BNG, Gotta love the 6.5's

What twist would you need to stabilize the 170s?

Berger is stating 8 twist last I heard. JBM stability calculator indicates that 9 or even 9.5 would work at higher altitudes.

If I am not mistaken, BignGreen; didn't you shoot the 175's in a 10 with no problems.?
Aim small = Miss small
