Bullet stabilization in .25 cal 1:12.8"

What bullets can I stabilize with my .250 Donaldson Ace? The caliber is .257", it's based off of a .250 Savage. The twist rate is 1:12.8"

Thank you.

Elk,

You are right. I contacted Bryan Litz of Berger Bullets, and he said the same thing. It will take a bullet of under 90 grs. to stabilize in this twist rate. Especially, given the caliber designation, the 250 Donaldson Ace.

Thanks a lot.
