7mm rem mag for LR sambar Hunting

what do you think about a Tikka T3 Flutied in 7mm rem mag with a 24 inch barrel with a NF F1 scope and a MCS T4 stock 5+gk..
and may be if I fall in love ill put on a new barrel wen its burnt out.
im likening the 168-180 gr Berger's and how do you thing the 9.5 twist will go
what sort of speeds can I be expecting with 24 barrel and 168gr bergers?

I will be shooting all sorts of game at all distances, mainly target and Sambar

Re: 7mm rem mag for LR sambar Hunting

I would go with a 1:9 if you want to efficiently push the 168's and 180's.

However, the 1:9.5 will work. My Browning A-Bolt II has a 9.5 barrel on it, and it shoots them fine, but I feel a 1:9 would be better, which is what I plan on putting on it next.
