No . the twist is fine.
I would recomend a good cleaning and then a strict break in process.
Factory barrels some times are bad about this and need to be broke in more than a custom
I had a factory barreled 416 rem that was terrible and it took over 30 rounds of clean and
shoot to come around. Now it comes clean with very little effort and shoots twice as good
Do at least 10 shoot and clean and then shoot 3 and clean until it comes clean with only a
couple of solvent swabs and dry patches.
Even if it has had lots of rounds fired in it if it has never been through the break in process
it should get much better.
