.50 twist rate....

With 700-750 grain pills as the primary diet, what twist rate would you LRH folks recommend?

I'm thinking a 1-12 would be about right but I'd like to hear your comments.

Re: .50 twist rate....

Most of the information that I have suggest a 1 in 10 twist for the 650-750gr pills so thats what I ordered. Hart barrel to be air-gauged. There's a guy in Richardson,Tx that make you any kind of .50 pill you want! From 600-900gr, how about an 885gr. with a B.C. of 1.1 he's a member of the FCSA. His number is 214-235-0933.Pack'n big iron and shoot'n hot lead
