300 rum twist

I was just wondering how many people out there have tried heavy bullets in a 12 twist. I have ordered a 10 twist with the intention of 210 bergers but I have been waiting two months for the barrel and I could get a 12 twist lilja sent out tommorrow. Any input very appreciated.

    If you plan on using the heavy bullets a 10 or 11 twist is the way to go for the 300 RUM.

    I shoot 200 grain accubonds and 220 SMK's out of a 12x Lilja in 300 RUM. Stabilize just fine. I also get slightly better velocity and BC's.

    Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

    ?? Less drop due to increased velocity, or better BC??

    Re: 300 rum twist

    Never heard of anyone having any problems with the 200 gr Accubond in the 1-12. I have heard of a few problems with the 210 Berger and 220 gr Sierra. Some shoot them fine others have issues at long range in cold temps.

    Personally, I would go with a 1-10 but I generally lean toward a bit more twist then needed.
