6.5 140 amax

Anyone have experience with using this bullet in a Remington 700 factory barrel? I think the factory barrels have a 1-9 twist. The box of bullets states 1-7.5 twist. Thanks for any advise. I am loading for 264 win. mag.

I'm shooting them at 2800fps from a 1:8 barreled 6.5 creedmoor and they have been performing beautifully......since your 264 can push them faster I think you may be ok. Never know unless you try them.
