Berger bullets out of Remington stock barrels

Hey guys! I have a question about some Berger bullets I would like to try. They are the 95 gr. Match Hunting VLD's. I would like to use them out of a stock Remington .243 barrel which I think it is 1:10 in twist rate. Berger recommends 1:9. Would this barrel of mine work?

On a Berger VLD bullet you have to have alot of spin to get them to stabilize.

Re: Berger bullets out of Remington stock barrels

i will soon have a factory 243 bdl to try. . i think they will stabilize. the factory twist is 1-9 1/8. i tried a couple years ago to get a buddies vls to shoot them . big groups no keyholes'. don't know what the problem was. my 12 twist shoot the 88s into little bitty holes.

Read the Berger bullet test thread. The 87 grain is designed for a 1:10.
