6.5-284 twist rate
I'm still in a bit of a quandry regarding the correct twist rate for a 6.5-284 I'm having built. I've settled on a Shilen but can't decide if I should go 1:8 or 1:9. I know the 1:8 is preferred for 140s and I would like the ability to shoot them if I wish, but realistically I will be shooting more 120s than 140s and may even want to use 100s sometimes. This will not be a specialized long range rig but I want the ability to "try my hand" at long range target shooting if the urge strikes me. Is there any harm in following thr old advice of selecting a twist appropriate for the heaviest bullet you may shoot? ie. will a 1:8 create problems with 120s? Could one expect decent accuracy with 85s - 100s?
