95VLD'S in a 10 Twist .243AI

Hi,


I am shooting 70gr noslers BT from my 28" Pacnor 10 twist barrel on a .243AI.

Will it be able to stabelize 95gr BERGER VLD's out to 600m? They should run at 3400fps minimum. I am 5000ft above sea level.

Thanks for the assistance
Chrisjan

I would believe you will be ok. I ran them in a 243wssm out of a 22"bbl on AR platform to 800yards

Berger recommends a 1:9 twist but you should be able to push them fast enough to stabilize them. Berger does recommend a 87gr for a 1:10. Which is what i'll be switching my 6br to.
