Re: 6.5 twist requirements
I'd be surprised if the 142WC shot well from a 1:9 at Bodines. Regardless of Velocity. The bullet clearly has a longer bearing surface than the others, but weighing the same for length. So it's specific gravity must be lower. At an elevation of ~1200ft ASL, 1:9, this bullet looks -barely stable- to me. I'd be interested enough to send a box to you or Boyd. Maybe you could load up some for 1k testing. If they work in a 6.5/284 or WSSM there, I'll order a bunch more. Let me know
I happened on a few 1:8.5 Border barrels for my still unfinished 6.5/WSSM. So I'm curious. I got the impression from Boyd that 1:9 was not ideal.
