Re: 6mm berger 95gr VLD twist rate

I had a Rem. VLS rifle that came with a 1/9.25" twist rate. I tried the Berger 95 Gr. VLD in it and couldn't get that bullet to shoot, which bummed me out because that bullet is an awesome bullet like all Berger VLD's. I managed to get the 105 Gr. A-Max to stabilize ok, so I stuck with that. At least until I had a .260 Rem. barrel put on the rifle.

It will work BUT, the question is can your rifle handle the load. To get the 95 to stabalize in a 1:10 twist you really have to up your loads. Go to a faster burning powder, but be CAREFULL. Do your tests the whole time.

LR6MM- Did they keyhole or just shoot a large group?? i would think the 9 twist would be plenty to stabalize the 95. i need to try some in my 12 twist.
