Re: 6BR twist rates?

I have a 1in8 Pac-Nor on my Rem 700 custom it shoots both 85gr Gamekings and 87gr Vmax into .1-.2" at 100yds, and are good out to 400yds but at 500yds 105 vlds and 107 mks take over.

    You guys shooting VLDs...hows your 100/200 yds groups?..are they stabilizing the bullets that fast or are they starting to get thier act together around 300+ yds?

    my 1:8 twist bartlien 6br shoots very accurate with 80 up to 107's

    it does well with the 105 hunting vld @ 100-500yds
    although 1:8 and 105's isn't the ideal 100-200 yd benchrest setup

    i settled on the 107 smk for long range paper/steel out to 1k

    my son has taken a few deer and hogs with the 107's

    if hunting was the primary purpose, i'd probably go with bergers

    for a multi-purpose rifle, I'd rather be a little fast on the twist than too slow
