The 7mm 195 hasn't been designed yet so the twist requirement is not known for sure, but it will probably be around 1:8" to 1:8.5".

What velocity are you guys thinking the 270's will hang together up to? I'm surprised that it will take a 1-8 twist, I shoot 175 Matrix in a 1-10 with no issues at 5600 ft elevation and 3014 fps out of my 270 WSM.

    I have also been told that the 190gr 7mm matrix's do fine in a 1-9". I think the 7LRM would push these 195's to 3000fps. I just talked to my friend Chris at benchmark and he thinks the 1-9" should be alright. I just would rather make a change now before I get it all done if you know what I mean. How much does a 1/2" of twist change things that much? I really dont want to miss out on using this bullet though!

    Pretty much any of the cut rifle guys can make you an 8, 8.25, 8.5 or whatever you would like.

    Pac-Nor and Lilja have a 1-8, Benchmark is twisting a 1-9 for the 175 Matrix don't know if they have a 1-8 for the 270.

    You can order a 1:8 through Brux from the looks of their order form.

    Due to significant feedback we've decided to make the 375 cal bullet next. This will be followed most likely by the 408 cal. Please keep in mind that introducing a whole new caliber takes a lot of time due to the significant amount of tooling involved. It won't be soon (and not likely this year) but the 375 cal and then 408 cal are the next new calibers to be made at Berger. We will likely add the others on this list eventually as well but let's get the other two out first before we even start to get excited about 8mm or 35 cal.
    Eric,
    Thanks for the update.
    Now I can get serious about putting the .375CT together. Any idea on the weight of the proposed .375 bullet?

    Bryan, Twist required for the .375 pill?.

    Thanks a heap.
