Re: 6.5mm twist rate

Berger recommends a 1:8 twist for their 140 VLDs. I have this twist in both my 6.5x284's and it shoots the lighter weight bullets as well ad the 140's.

I am using an 8 twist in my 6.5 WSM and I am currently testing loads with the 140 Hybrid.

Where do we find the 140 Hybrid? I haven't seen that on Bergers webpage. Did I just miss it somewhere?

Nevermind, I found it. Didn't realize it was under the target bullets section, Sorry.

If you don't mind me asking how long is your barrel and what kind of velocity are you getting from the 6.5 WSM with the 140.

Thanks
