    I would say that is significant.

    forgot to respond to your question about twist....

    1:10 is just right. Will shoot everything up to and including the 300grain pills

    It is significant but that is only part of the story. A 1/8" deep flute removes 1/4" from the barrel diameter. You can't use a flute that size on just any barrel contour. You can easily add more weight than that to your blank getting it to a size that would allow flutes that size.
