see first post in this thread

Berger/Litz estimates you'll need 1:8.5" twist

Having joined this forum I understand it NOW. Looks like the new bullets are going to require new barrels for lots of us. But keep them coming. Are there any CHEAP new barrels available? That's a consideration for many of us.

Yes. But, cheap is often the most expensive option in the long run.

You don't have to use extreme anything to have fun shooting long range.

Find the best BC bullet you can that will stabilize in your existing rifle.
Develop a sub-MOA load.
Go shoot some steal at increasing distances.

You're going to want good optics with accurate/repeatable turrets. Buy or borrow a range finder or shoot on a range with known distances.

Get some practice doping, dialing, and reading conditions. Then, go extreme as you get more comfortable with all of the real costs involved.

Initially, you only need to compete against yourself.

I drive a Hyundai Elantra because it's a good cheap car. I don't buy $60000 Cadillacs that can be junk. Granted that expensive barrels may be slightly more accurate, I don't really care. I'm not a competition shooter. Want the best available for the money, given that incremental accuracy improvement is not worth a lot of money to me.

I'm just saying that you can get a lot of mileage out of your factory barrel.

So long as you're competing against yourself and honing your skills.

Premium factory ammo may be fine out to 500+ yds for practice. Otherwise, you need to start handloading. It won't matter how good or expensive the barrel is if you feed it garbage.

If you're shooting sub-moa, then spend money on good optics.
