    My rate of twist is 1 in 9 1/4.

    While on this subject, what would be the best ROT for a .280 AI shooting mainly 140 gr. bullets?

    I would try the 180g VLD if I was you. Higher BC then any of the bullets anyone else mentioned and it WILL work on elk. It WILL stabilize out of your factory rifle. I had a winchester sporter model 70 in 7 STW and it shot the 180's just fine out of that twist, cant reemmber what exactly it was, 9 1/4 or 9 1/2 maybe. The 168g VLD would be a good one as well as the 160g AB.

    Do a search for keithcandler he's a big stw fan.
    His posts will show some powders and hot loads for the stw's.
    Stay w/ the heavies as stated although keith is a fan of the barnes 140 tsx.ME
