Re: Can a 1-10\" twist barrel in .224 cal stabilize the Amax 75 grn?
When those bullets first came out, they said right on the box to use in 1-8" twist barrels. Now they say 1-9". I have a few of the 8's left and they measure the same in every way to the 9's. I bet that they will work ok in a 10" twist if the velocity is there and the air is thin and warm. Using a 28" barrel, a 22-250 improved will push them in the velocity range you are looking for while burning a little less powder than the 22-6mmAI and the 22-243AI. Just something to think about.

P.S. You might also want to run a 6 or 8 groove barrel to shoot that Amax as it seems to be easier on the jacket of that fragile Hornady. Fifty driver and I had an interesting conversation on that topic, and we both thought there might just be something to it!
If it's not far, it's boring.
