Re: 6.5 STW barrel

I was thinking with the velocity I will be getting a 1-9 would work.

    I have a 1-9 twist 6.5 STW and it stabilizes the 140's well. It is a fun gun to shoot with the 140's around 3400 fps. Check the ballistics of a .612 or whatever bc at 3400 fps and you see why I like it so much. It is a very accurate cartridge. I had a good friend that shot a 6.5-300 wby years ago but I went with the STW because of the cheap brass. Same performance and both fun to shoot.

    Brass will be a lot easier to form also over 300wby
