7mm ultra

I am planning a build soon, and I need to know what twist rate would suffice for most 7mm bullets over 175 grains @ 2900-3100 FPS (especially the 180 berger and the 200 wildcat...).... thanks, sharpshooter

    Re: 7mm ultra

    Cool, I am trying to convince myself to go with a rock barrel, but they don't pre-fit barrels, and I don't have a lathe lol. So does anybody know where the best place is to have a blank chambered and threaded for my savage action? (I can install and headspace myself...)
