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.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

?? 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.
