Re: Berger Bullets Tech Data List
Thanks for sharing the data, it helps to overcome some of the "black art" when there is real information available. But I do have a question about the suggested twist rates. What velocity are those based on? Isn't the real factor for stability RPM? As the velocity increases the required twist rate would decrease in order to meet the RPM for stability.
The reason I am asking is that I would like to shoot heavier bullets out of my 22-250 but it only has a 1:12" twist and most of the 22 caliber bullets that I would be interested in require 1:8" but I would guess that this is based on the slower but more popular 223 REM. I'm just trying to figure how heavy of a bullet I should be able to stabilize in my 22-250.
Thanks for any input you can share.
